Friends Host Summer Reading Book Sale
Scheduled for May 29 – June 10 at Birmingham Public’s Central Library

Birmingham, Alabama—With several recent donations, the Friends’ Bookstore is overflowing with inventory.  Beginning May 29, the Friends of the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) will host an “in store” summer reading book sale.  What better time to show off the recent renovation of the Friends’ Bookstore and to connect to the successful summer reading initiatives undertaken by the library system? The sale begins the day after Memorial Day and continues through June 10.  Shoppers can expect to find 25% off all books and books-on-tape which are regularly all priced at $2 and below.

The sale will feature the following:

•          hundreds of children, teen and young adult books, already as much as 90% off the original price, now an additional 25% off the low, low prices—including picture
            books, readers, chapter books, teen novels, and lots of non-fiction titles;

•          hundreds of adult fiction titles—both hardback and paperback—covering all genres. These books include best-sellers novels by such popular authors as Stuart
            Woods, John Grisham, Sandra Brown, J.D. Robb, David Baldacci, Fern Michaels, and others; and

•          the stock of adult non-fiction will be 25% off as well.

Come by and support the Friends as they prepare for the best summer reading season yet.  The Friends’ Bookstore is located on the second floor of the Central Library located at 2100 Park Place.  Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.  For additional information, please call (205) 226-3761.
