The Windsor Public Library (850 Ouellette Avenue) is holding a gigantic book sale on Friday and Saturday, October 26 and 27, from 9 AM to 5 PM.
There will be thousands of titles to choose from, covering all genres of reading and viewing tastes. Hardcover books and trade paperbacks will be priced at $2 with mass market and small paperbacks at $1 but we’re encouraging everyone to pick up a plastic bag and fill it with books for only $2 or fill a cardboard box for $5 (we supply the bags and boxes).
Fiction is by far the largest genre for sale – but biographies, history, self-help and how-to items will also be available. The books and DVDs are for sale because of a de-selection process which has made them surplus to need or classified them as out-of-date. Additionally, donated items not needed are also for sale. Books will be sorted by subject.
This year there is a large selection of materials in: Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, German, Hungarian, Italian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and Urdu. There will also be a number of large print books available.
In past years, WPL has scheduled sales throughout the year at all branches, but after listening to customer suggestions we are having another large sale – providing the opportunity for as many members of the community as possible to explore all of the titles available for purchase.
All proceeds from the sale will go to purchase new library materials.
