Princeton Library Book Sale

The 2015 Friends of the Princeton Public Library Book Sale will take place Oct. 16-18 in the library community room and a tent on Hinds Plaza.

One of the top used book sales in the region, the event features nearly 10,000 books for all ages on a wide variety of topics. Most books are priced between $1 and $3, with art books and special selections priced higher.

The event opens with a preview sale Friday, Oct. 16, from 10 a.m. to noon. A ticket for the Preview Sale is $10, but is free for Friends of the Library. Numbered tickets will be available at the door starting at 8 a.m. Customers enter the sale in numerical order. Barcode scanners will be permitted at the tables, but collecting books to scan will not be allowed.

Starting at noon, admission to the book sale is free for the remainder of the sale. Hours are noon to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.

On Sunday, books will be sold at half price in the community room and in the tent on Hinds Plaza. From 3-5:30 p.m. on Sunday, a bag sale will be held in the tent. A standard grocery bag can be filled with books for $5. Bags will be supplied at the sale.
