What a great book sale on Saturday. Every single book was gone at the end of the day! We saw lots of old friends and lots of new faces.

So you came to the sale and stocked up on books, maybe you bought a bag or two for $2.oo a piece. But, this is a new week and we stocked the store with lots of new things. I hope we see you soon.

If you didn’t make it to the sale don’t despair. We have a great selection of books in the store and our everyday prices are almost unbeatable.

Summer Bag-of-Books Sale 6/6/15

The Friends Summer Bag-of-Books Sale will take place on Saturday, June 6 during June Jubilee Weekend in downtown Kalamazoo. It’s our biggest book sale of the year and it takes place during a very exciting, activity-packed weekend that officially kicks off the summer season in Kalamazoo.

The sale opens at 9:00 a.m. under the portico at the Central Library on Rose Street. Tables and carts will be filled with thousands of books. You will find fiction, science fiction, romance, children’s books and nonfiction separated by category.

You will only pay 10¢ per book or for an even better deal you can fill a grocery-size bag full of books and pay only $2.00! You may bring your own sturdy bag. (In fact I encourage you to.) We will have paper grocery bags available which you can buy for $2.00 and then fill.
The sale closes at 3:30. 

If you come early you’ll get the very best selection and get to participate in the happy hustle and bustle that always marks the first couple hours of the sale. If you come a little later you will have a little more relaxed shopping experience. Or come twice and experience both!
