Over 50,000 “Gently Read” Books On Sale This Weekend at Altadena Library Bookstravaganza


Chillier, damp weather is just the perfect backdrop for the Friends of the Altadena Library super sale of books this weekend both today, Saturday, May 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 17 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Check out the deals, buy a bunch and settle down for great reads…

The sale will be held in the Main Library’s Barbara J. Pearson Community Room and the parking lot.

This is one of the largest used book sales in the LA area. The sale features over 50,000 fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback books for all interests and age groups, plus DVDs, CDs and other items, all at great prices!

Proceeds from the Friends book sale and book store go toward sponsoring Library programs that are available for free to all ages, such as the Summer Reading Program for kids and teens, and the Distinguished Speaker Program for adults. Proceeds also go toward the purchase of furniture, library collections, and more.
