Bixby book sale is wrapping up

VERGENNES — How do you clear a used book sale of 100-plus cartons of newly acquired books? Friends of the Bixby are showing how as they reach the final days of their Humongous Book Sale.
On Saturday, Aug. 6, all books will be on sale by donation. Customers choose the books they want and offer a donation they believe is fair. No questions asked.
Until then, the book sale is open daily and all adult books, CD audiobooks and DVDs are half price (50 cents-$1). Children’s books remain at 25 cents each. Book selections include popular authors, cookbooks, gardening topics, birding, travel, sports (especially golf), biographies, fiction and Vermont-themed poets, authors, travel, nonfiction and history.
“This is the perfect time to restock your camp reading collection, find audiobooks for your next driving vacation, and pick up something for the dog days of summer,” Friends of the Bixby volunteer Marsha Hoffman said. “We just offered free children’s books and free paperback books this past weekend yet it doesn’t seem like much of a dent was made in the books on display. And as room allows we have a few more cartons to be unboxed. Something new every day.”
The Humongous Book Sale ends this Saturday and regular prices and hours will resume Thursday, Aug. 11. Check www.bixbylibrary.org for dates and hours of this special sale. Regular hours: Thursday, 2-6:30 p.m.; Friday, 2-4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Go to 258 Main St., Vergennes, lower level of the Bixby Memorial Library, back parking lot access.
