It is that time of year again! The Annual Giant Gently Used Book Sale hosted by Friends of Calvert Library will begin with a members-only preview night on Thursday, January 12 from 5-8pm. You can join at the door with $10 for an individual and $15 for a family membership.
The sale opens to the public on Friday, January 13 from noon to 4pm and will also be held on Saturday, January 14 from 9am-3pm. The event is in the meeting rooms at the Calvert Library Prince Frederick and there will be thousands of books in good to excellent condition.
The books range from classic fiction and the latest best-sellers to non-fiction titles of all types: self-help, military, biography, cooking, politics, history, you name it. The sale is also well-stocked with children’s books and videos for all ages – toddlers to young adult – so this would be the perfect opportunity to pick up a bagful of books to encourage reading in the kids you know.
You can also buy your tickets for Books & Bubbly at the sale. This event, held on Friday, January 27, 7-9pm at Calvert Library Prince Frederick, is an elegant evening with delicious food, great music, bubbly and other libations. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at any Calvert Library location.
The proceeds of the sale and Books & Bubbly are used by the Friends of the Library to provide financial support to many of the programs the library offers and to enable the library to offer services and products beyond the reach of tax dollars. For more information call 410-535-0291 or 301-855-1862.
