FLASH book sale

Did you miss the Friends of PPL book sale last month? Don’t despair! Portland Public Library is holding a supplemental book sale on Saturday, July 26 from 9 am – noon. We’ll have more than 5,000 items to choose from, all in good condition on a wide variety of topics and many with recent publication dates. This is a great chance to add some variety to your shelves, stock up for a house-bound relative or friend, or freshen up a collection.

100% of the proceeds from the book sale benefit PPL’s collections, programs, and outreach. This is a CASH ONLY sale. Hardcovers will be $1 each, and softcovers 50 cents each. Lovers of old cassette audio books and VCR material, we’ve got some oldie-but-goodie gems in the sale for you, too, at unbeatable prices.

This CASH ONLY sale will take place at PPL’s new off-site collections management facility at 1000 Riverside Street on Saturday, July 26 from 9 am to noon. There is ample parking on site. Our friends at Maine Historical Society will be holding a tag sale that day on site as well, with the sale of donated items benefiting MHS’s education and outreach programs. We know many library fans are also history enthusiasts, so you may find some bonus treasures on Saturday. (Details at https://www.mainehistory.org/programs_events.shtml)

We look forward to seeing you! Questions about the book sale? Contact Emily at 207-871-1700 ext. 759 or levine@portland.lib.me.us
