March Madness Book Sale at Standley Lake Library
March Madness isn’t just about college basketball. It’s also the month when the Standley Lake library holds its annual super-awesome book sale.
This year the March Madness sale is taking place March 8th – 10th, 10AM-4:30 each day.
The sale presents a major opportunity for people to find incredible deals. With over 7,000 books, CDS, and DVDS, you’re guaranteed to find a great selection at the following unbeatable prices:
Hardbacks - $1
Childrens books - $.50 – 1
Audiobooks - $1-3
Nonfiction - $1 – 2.50
There’ll be some specially priced like-new items. Best of all, Sunday is Bag Day. Fill a grocery bag full with books and get them all for just $6.
As with the yearly Whale of a Sale event, the money made at March Madness goes toward the library Foundation, which in turn uses it to support library programming. Funds generated by the sale help purchase the new books awarded to children and teens at the end of the library’s Summer Reading Club. Last year almost 15,000 children and teens met the requirements needed to earn a free book.
JCPL would not be able to provide that many new books to the kids and teens without the support of the Foundation, and the Foundation wouldn’t be able to do it without the support the public provides through our booksales. So come to Standley Lake on March 8th – 10th and get some great books while supporting a worthy cause.
