Great Library Book Sales This Friday and Saturday

There are not one but three big DC branch library book sales coming up. The one at the Palisades library is a two-day event, both Friday and Saturday. The one at the Tenley-Friendship Library is just on Saturday. Each event benefits the Friends of the Library for that branch.


Come to the Friends of Palisades Library's huge, two-day fall book sale on Friday, September 30, from 1 - 4 pm, and Saturday, October 1, from 10 am - 4pm, at the Library at 4901 V Street NW, on the corner of V Street and MacArthur Boulevard.

There will be more than ten thousand books!

Most books are only a dollar, except for bargain books, which are 25 cents each or $5 per bag. During the last three hours of the sale on Saturday (1 - 4 pm) regular books will sell for $10 per bag.

The Friends of Tenley-Friendship Library is holding its first book sale since the opening of the new Tenley Library. The sale will be on Saturday October 1 between 11am and 4pm in the library parking lot. We hope to see all our neighbors there.

We have a terrific selection of new and used books that have never been offered at a used book sale before. Most books are $3 and under! We have great fiction, including mysteries, thrillers, fantasy and science fiction; there's a wide variety of nonfiction: parenting, politics, history, cookbooks and much more. Our children's collection is large and covers all ages.

Come early for the best finds. Friends members will be admitted to the sale as early as 10am. If you are not yet a member, you may join at the door. Friends membership is $10 for individuals, $20 for families and $25 for businesses.

And we're saving our own Cleveland Park Friends of the Library book sale for last:

Cleveland Park Day is Saturday, October 1st, and the Friends of the Cleveland Park Library will be participating with a Bag O’ Books Bonanza from 10:00am - 4:00pm on the 2nd floor of the Library. 

Fill a shopping bag with all the mysteries, romances, or science fiction books that will fit -- all for just $3:00! Select hardcovers and paperback in any combination. We'll supply the bags, courtesy of community-friendly Whole Foods in Tenleytown.
