It's that time of year again: the Winter Used Book Sale at the Rochester Hills Public Library.
The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library organization normally hosts three large used book sales a year; this is the first. Each sale generates about $20,000 for the library. That money supports programs and equipment at the library.
Organizers say there are more than 35,000 used items in many different categories ready to be perused and sold.
Here's what you need to know:
- Where: The multipurpose room inside the Rochester Hills Public Library
- When: There's a presale for members of the Friends organization from 5:30-8 tonight. Not a "Friend?" You can purchase a membership at the door. Public hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday.
- What are the prices? Most books are $1. Sunday is "bag day:" everything you can fit in a bag is $5.
