Attention, readers! Boise Public Library's annual Spring Book Sale is just around the corner, coming on April 9, 10, 11 and 12! The sale is held across from the Main Library in the warehouse at 762 River Street, and is conducted by the Library's Friends group.

Sale hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 9-11, additional books are stocked throughout the day. All merchandise is half-price on Sunday.

A Preview Sale for Friends members is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8. New members may join at the door for $10 and up. Note that electronic scanning is not permitted at the Preview Sale.

Sale items include paperback and hard bound books for all ages, sorted into 40 categories. Most paperbacks are 50 and most hard bounds are $1.00, or $9.00 for all you can stuff in a bag (some items excluded). Some first editions, oversized books, cookbooks and local interest books are individually priced, as well as records, video and audio tapes and CDs, magazines, prints and posters. Everything is priced to sell!

Last year, the Friends raised over $150,000 to benefit the library through book sales, online sales and the Friends Bookstore at the Main Library. Friends volunteers prepare for and staff sales, typically sorting through about 200,000 items each year. Funds raised by the Friends help purchase materials for the library's collection and support major library projects, programs and events. The group is currently focusing on branch library needs.

The Friends of the Boise Public Library is a nonprofit volunteer organization founded to promote the interest and welfare of the library. To learn more about donating books or joining the Friends organization, call 972-8247, or visit the library's website at www.boisepubliclibrary.org/Friends.
