Friends of the Rochester Hills Library Fall Book Sale

How many books can you peruse?

The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library will give you a chance to at least try to set a personal best during the Friends Fall Used Book and Media Sale set for October 24-October 28.

But be forewarned: Early is better. “We had an astonishing number of customers at the summer sale,” said sale chairperson Ann Gruenewald. “Hopefully, that will be the case this fall. “

The place to be is the Library’s second floor Used Media Hub at 500 Olde Towne Road in downtown Rochester.

Except for a few higher quality items that are priced individually, all hardcover and large softcover books are $1, paperbacks and children’s books are 50 cents. Also available are many DVDs, CDs, books on CD, and VHS tapes that are also inexpensively priced.

The order of sale follows the usual pattern. The first day is a Presale for members of the Friends group, the library’s donor support arm. They get first look at the items in stock on Wednesday October 24 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. Memberships (individual $20; family $35; Student/Senior $10; Senior Couple $20) may be purchased that evening at the door.

The general sale to the public is Thursday, October 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The sale closes on Sunday, October 28 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. It is the popular Bag Day, where you can buy anything that fits into a grocery bag for $5.

Proceeds go to the Friends, which is the library’s prime non-public support group and is dedicated to promoting a closer relationship between the library and its constituents through fund raising and special events.
