Pleasanton library to host Fall book sale starting Friday

40,000 donated books, including bestsellers, children's picture books available at bargain prices

Boost your private book collection at the Fall Book Sale 2010 hosted by the Friends of the Pleasanton Public Library this weekend at the library's large meeting room.

More than 40,000 donated books and other media from bestsellers to biographies to children's picture books will be for sale.

Paperbacks are 50 cents, with hardbacks and large-format paperbacks for $1. Revenues purchase library materials, programs or equipment.

The Friday night sale will run from 6-9 p.m. for Friends members; memberships are available at the door. The sale is open to the public from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, and from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday.

Because of the tight confines of the sale layout, no strollers are allowed.

The Friends are seeking adult volunteers to help set up and to work during the sale. Call Nancy Bering at 462-4368.
