Key information about items

  • Books are organized by type / topic for easy searching
  • Books may be bought individually, or “by the bag” – fill a shopping bag for one price (prices are yet to be determined for this year, but last year a bag of books sold for $12).
  • “Better Books” are in a separate section and are sold individually for slightly higher prices.  These are typically $3 to $5 per item.

Unusual, high-quality, rare books and special sets are offered on a separate table – many on Silent Auction Bid sheets.  Bid closings are between 10:00 and 10:45 am (signs in the book department provide additional information).
