Friends of the Grand County Library host 2011 summer used book sales
July 15, 2011
If you are a book lover, summer in Grand County is the time to find bargains at the annual book sales sponsored by the Friends of the Grand County Library.
The sales offer hundreds of used items – from books to music CDs, puzzles and games – and those who attend can easily fill a bag for under $10. (Videocassettes are free.) Who needs an electronic device when you can stock up on summer reading material with used paperback books for $1 each?
For inspiration about what to buy, check out the reviews and recommendations on the Grand County Library district website at http://www.gcld.org. The daily picks and popular title lists will keep you up-to-date on the most popular reads this summer.
There are two major used book sales left this year – one at the Grand Arts Council Building in Grand Lake and one at the Fraser Valley Library in Fraser. The used book sales are the largest fundraisers for the Friends of the Grand County Library. The money from the book sales is distributed to the branch libraries by the Friends organization.
New this year – the Fraser Valley Library will be offering free keepsake posters of the Fraser Valley Library quilt ($10 value), and a Box Sale on Sunday, July 24 only.
