Want to get a jump on your Christmas shopping for book-loving friends and family this year? Then you may want to check out the Atlanta History Center’s 4th annual book sale this Saturday, October 23, from 9:00am-2:00pm. Held in the Kenan Research Center’s Draper Members Room, shoppers will be able to choose from a selection of over 2000 titles in subjects including American and world history, genealogy, biography, and fiction. While acquiring books at bargain prices shoppers are also helping the Research Center; proceeds from the sale support the mission of the archives and library in promoting the preservation, conservation, and care of the permanent collections. Once you finish shopping, make a day of it and check out some of the fascinating exhibitions at the Atlanta History Center. And don’t forget to keep your receipt! Proof of purchase from the sale entitles visitors to enjoy a $5 discount on admission (but only on that day, October 23). For more information on the sale, call 404-814-4049.
And the bargain shopping need not end there! Many DCPL branches host ongoing book sales where books, magazines, and other media can be procured at rock bottom prices, with proceeds from all purchases going to support your local library. Contact individual branches for pricing and other details. A full list of branches is available on our website.
