Gardendale Library's Big Spring Book Sale

We are having our first big Spring book sale! This sale is to help raise money for our expansion fund, so please join us Thursday April 29 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m, Friday April 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m and then Saturday May 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

As we have an abundance of books and other items for sale we do not have the room to have the sale at the library, so it will be held at the old Anderson Boat Building on HWY 31. Click here for directions from the library.

Prices will range from .50¢ each or 3/$1 for paperbacks, $1 and up for most hardbacks, audiobooks, VHS and DVDs. Magazines 4/$1. However, we will have some more expensive items ranging from $2-$3.

We will also be selling coffee and cakes for your enjoyment. All proceeds benefit the Gardendale Public Library Expansion Fund!
