The Windsor Public Library is cleaning house, and a holding a gigantic book sale from March 13th to 15th.

There will be thousands of titles to choose from, covering all genres of reading and viewing tastes. Hardcover books and trade paperbacks will be priced at $2 with mass market and small paperbacks at $1.  You can also fill a plastic bag – which they will supply – and fill it with books for only $5. Audio cassettes and DVDs are priced at $2, car service manuals at $2 and magazines at 50 cents.

Fiction is by far the largest genre for sale – but biographies, history, cookbooks, self-help and how-to items will also be available. The books and DVDs are for sale because of a de-selection process which has made them surplus to need, classified them as out-of-date or simply worn out through heavy use. Additionally, donated items not needed are also for sale.

Unlike past book sales that were held at all branches, this sale will held only at the location on Ouellette.  The library says that after listening to customer suggestions, they decided that having one large sale will provide the opportunity for as many members of the community as possible to explore all of the titles available for purchase.

All proceeds from the sale will go to purchase new library materials. Suggestion boards will be set up around the sale area asking members of the community to share what new materials they’d like to see at the library.

Hours will be Friday and Saturday from 9:30am to 4:30pm and Sunday, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.
