The 32nd annual Book Sale is coming up August 7-9, 2015 at Plano Centre, 2000 East Spring Creek Parkway. The sale is a great place to shop for bargains, with almost 100,000 items priced at $2 or less!
New at the sale this year are audio books which, along with DVDs and CDs, are only $2. Books for all ages are priced from .25 cents to $2, and you can shop knowing that the proceeds directly support our community at the five Plano libraries.
To find those hidden treasures, shop Friday night starting at 6:00 p.m. or join Friends and get in an hour early. Saturday offers time to browse and Sunday will feature great bargains with everything priced at $10/bag.
Last year's sale helped fund new STEAM kits including Finch robots and MaKeyMaKeys, family science programs, summer events, eBooks, eMagazines and more.
