Our Local Library Used-Book Sales

You can own that book at Washington Irving and Memorial Libraries.

“I need help carrying all these books to the car please!”

So many treasures to be found in the sale room at our local libraries. Best sellers, biography, art, travel, self-help, history, science, Spanish, Korean, etc.  The Memorial Library on Olympic has tons of fiction, while the Washington Irving Library is big on children’s books.  L-o-v-e-l-y children’s books -- and cheap.  Eloise, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Roald Dahl, The Stupids.  Many award-winning hardbacks in excellent condition at 25 cents each. Adult books are $1. DVDs, magazines and comics for sale too!  And something for every taste, even the quirky.  Explains a local resident, I was researching the Warren Report conspiracy theory and found three books.” So if you want to bask in a nostalgic experience and rub shoulders with fascinating people, mosey over to the two library sale rooms.  

Hours at Washington Irving are Mondays 1-4 pm; Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:30-4:30 pm and occasional Saturday sales. Memorial Library sale hours are Saturdays 10 – 12 am with special monthly sales. I like the periodic all-you-can-fit-in-a-bag sales. Donations accepted.
