The St. Pete Beach Library will have a super-sized BIG Used Book Sale, Saturday, August 10, 8 to 11am in the Library parking lot at 353 73rd Avenue, hosted by the Friends of the Library. All proceeds will go toward the planned Library expansion and renovation.
The Library is reducing its collection to make room for new books, CDs and DVDs, and will have great books available in several genres. Included will be fiction/mystery, non-fiction/biography, large print and children’s books, Prices for the “withdrawn library books” will be 25 cents each or 10 for $2.00.
In addition, the Friends’ Book Store will have a major sale of selected hardbacks at 50% off, paperbacks from 25 cents, vintage antique collectible books, National Geographic magazines, CDs and VHS tapes.
The Library’s approximate $2 million-plus major expansion and renovation project will see the current 8,200 square feet morph into about 11,500 square feet. With pro bono plans from architect and former Mayor Ward Friszolowski of Harvard Jolly, the project will include a 3,300-square-foot addition with a new entrance lobby and 75-capacity Community Room, expanded parking and a complete interior renovation.
Plan to come early for the best selection of titles at bargain prices!
