Volunteers for Friends of Jacksonville Public Library are getting ready for a new kind of sale – a Book Warehouse Sale! Coming June 24-26, they will turn their Book Warehouse at University Park Branch into a huge bookstore.
“We’re trying something new,” Harry Reagan, FJPL president, said. “We sort books all year at our Book Warehouse. We’ll just stop sorting for a few days and have a big sale right there.” FJPL customers are used to big sales at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds, Reagan said, but this is a more cost-effective way to hold a sale. “Our Book Warehouse is only a few minutes from the Fairgrounds,” he said. “This way we don’t have to load all of those books on trailers, haul them to the Fairgrounds, unload them and put them out on tables.”
Book Warehouse Sale Schedule:
June 24: 5:00 – 9:00 (Members Only Night)
June 25: 10:00 – 6:00
June 26: 12:00 – 6:00 ($10 for a Bag of Books)
University Park Branch is located at 3435 University Blvd. N. Visit the FJPL page to become a member and learn how you can help support the library.
