The Woods Hole Public Library announces that their next big seasonal book sale will start on Saturday, December 3 at 10 AM, closing that day at 5 PM, and available for browsing and buying during regular Library hours for the rest of the month.
The book sale committee, led by Camilla Larrey, retired librarian, and her corps of volunteers is carefully sorting and weeding the gift books so that the offering will be excellent, both in quality and arrangement. A very attractive aspect of this sale is that sorting: all the books in the sale room are arranged by subject (if they are non-fiction) and by author, if they are fiction, making it very easy to shop.
Lots of books have just arrived as new donations to the sale. They include, among others, gardening and fishing books, some old classics, some new. In addition, a large number of “coffee table” books from the Library’s drama collection have recently been discarded and will be included in the sale. They include dazzling books about big musical productions on the stage and in film, such as “100 Years of Broadway Shows,” “Broadway Musicals from ‘Show Boat’ to ‘A Chorus Line’ .” and others. There are also other, less flashy drama books, including discourses and anthologies.
As always, brand new fiction is included, as well as first editions, making the sale a popular destination for holiday shoppers.
All will be offered at very reasonable prices. The standard is $2 for hard-backs and $1 for large paper-backs, 50 cents for smaller trade paper-backs. Of course, larger and newer books will be marked a bit higher.
