Friends LogoThe Friends of the Bedford Library are holding a three day Spring Book Sale. The sale begins Friday, April 10th from 1:00-5:00 and continues Saturday, April 11, from 10 to 4.  On Sunday, April 12, from 1:00 to 4:00 there will be a bag sale of fiction and children’s books for $6/bag of those not already sold on Friday and Saturday. The Book Sale is held rain or shine at the library located at 7 Mudge Way in Bedford, MA.

Thanks to the huge quantity of quality book donations, there will be thousands of books offered in three different rooms all well organized. Books include fiction such as science fiction, romance, thrillers, poetry, plays and classics plus videos, dvds and cds; children’s books; books for young adults; non-fiction books including art, cookbooks, foreign languages, business, history, science, textbooks, and much more.

Most children and adult books are fifty cents for paperbacks and $1.00 for hardcovers. Larger paperbacks are $1.00. Some collectibles and choice gift books are specially priced.

Proceeds from book sales help underwrite library programs and services, including lecture and film series, additions to the library collection and museum passes.
