DON"T FORGET OUR 3 DAY USED BOOK SALE *See date correction in caption

The date for special needs shopping is

Thurs. Mar. 26 NOT Thurs. Mar. 13.





The Friends of Fullerton Public Library will be holding their next weekend long sale FRIDAY,  MARCH 27 through SUNDAY, MARCH 29  in the community room (Osborne Auditorium) of the Fullerton Public Library located at 353 W. Commonwealth, Fullerton CA.  
Almost time for the next sale
Here are the details of how the Friends conduct their sales:

Following our usual protocol, the first two hours of the sale, Friday morning from 10:00 until 12:00, are restricted to members only. By paying the $10 membership fee at the door anyone can become a member and can obtain early admittance. The general public is welcomed Friday afternoon from 12:00 until 4:00 and all day Saturday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. The book sale, like the library, does not open until 1:00 pm on Sunday and all are welcomed from the hours of 1:00 until 3:00. Visitors are very often surprised that on Sunday all items are 1/2 off. Then at 3:00 everyone leaves the sale floor in preparation for the real bargain shoppers.

At 3:00 all shoppers are outside where they may choose to leave. If shoppers choose to reenter they must pay $2 for a bag.  Sale bags  are sold to shoppers waiting in line to reenter the sale. Shoppers may purchase one or more of these bags from sale workers to fill with books and other media. Once back inside with a bag there will be opportunity to purchase additional bags. The sale must end at 4:00.

Important Message for Book Donors

The Friends of Fullerton Public Library could never do what we do for the Library if it were not for all the generous people of the Fullerton community who pass on their used books.  We sell the donated books at our sales, in our bookstore and online all for the benefit of the Library.  Our NEXT SALE IS SAT. DEC. 13.
The Friends cannot handle books that are wet or water damaged. Books can only be donated  when the Library is open.  In the picture to the left is the west side of the Library and the Employee Entrance. The white shed next to the employee doors is where book donations are to be left.  This shed is always unlocked  whenever the Library is open. When the Library is closed the shed is locked.  Books cannot be left outside the shed.  Please do not leave any donations when the Library is closed.
At this time of year especially, many of us are cleaning up and rearranging our homes for the holidays. Because the  end of the year is a good time to sort through old things to make room for new things, many of us want to make donations at this time. The Friends of the Library appreciate your book donations and want to remind you that the Library is open 7 days a week so if you are going to donate your old books please bring them over when the Library is open.

Mon. - Thurs. 
Fri. and Sat.
Make plans to bring in your used books early in the month. Remember there will be a USED BOOK SALE on DEC.13. (Scroll down to previous post to see details of this sale.) The last day to donate books for this year will be  Tues. Dec. 23.  for the Library will be closed from Christmas Eve.  which is Wed. Dec. 24 though the first of the New Year. The Library will reopen on Friday, January 2, 2015.

One Day Only Sale on Sat. Dec. 13

Bargain book hunters will want to come out for Friends of the Fullerton Public Library used book sale on Saturday,  December 13, 2014 from 10:00 until 4:00 at the entrance to the  Library's Conference Center area.  (Scroll down for poster.)
This is not a clearance sale. The Friends have never before offered for sale any of these individual items.  Some titles  may have been seen at previous sales.  But that is because this is primarily a FICTION SALE and many of the books have been best sellers. If there were books marketed that you previously missed out on, then you will want to pick them up at our sale.
You can see from the poster below  that the prices are really rock bottom.  Come out and buy a bunch of great books for yourself or others. Altogether there will be thousands of  hardcovers and paperbacks, children's and adult book, full length novels as well as a variety of magazines to choose from.  Some of the books offered at this sale were  packed in boxes and stored away prior to our last couple of sales. We just never know exactly what will show up on our sale tables.  Just know that this sale will be just as much thrilling to shop at as our others have been.  Don't miss out! Come out and book shop and shop and shop and shop. So many great books! SUCH BARGAIN PRICES!
