The Friends of Wilton Manors Library club will be hosting a book sale called Book Tent Event on Saturday, Jan. 10. The last one took place Dec. 13.
Attendees at the book sale will be able to purchase a large plethora of books, from popular fiction to non-fiction, from cookbooks to kids books and more. All books were either donated to the Friends of the Library or discarded from the library’s collection. The best part? Nothing sold will cost more than $1. Specifically, the mass market paperbacks cost 25 cents while hard covers will cost $1 - talk about some cheap shopping.
“Vice President Paul Kuta works extremely hard 2-4 days practically every week to deal with the volume of donated books and other items and making sure that they are moved from the Library to the Book Tent site,” said Rick Sterling, Director of the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library of Wilton Manors.
In addition to allowing those the ability of purchasing cheap books, the Book Tent Event is run in concurrence with the Island City Yard Sale as well as the weekly Green Market. There will be dozens of vendors present selling a wide range of products. So, not only will guests be able to feel nostalgic in buying books and possible vintage items, but they can simultaneously enjoy healthy, delicious eats while they’re at it.
When asked why people should come out to the Book Tent Event, Sterling replied, “Books, DVDs, CDs, etc. can be had for a low price and they will be supporting their local hometown library as well.”
No sweat if you can’t attend that week, bookworms - the event is reoccurring and take places on the second Saturday of every month at Hagen Park, 2020 Wilton Drive from 8 a.m. till 2 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library of Wilton Manors, an independent municipal library.
