The Dallas Public Library is Planning a Huge Summer Sale

By  | 

In January, the Dallas Public Library held a massive sale, getting rid of their leftover inventory from their old bookstore BookEnds. Now, DMagazine reports that the library needs to purge a surplus of books in another big event.

Friends of the Dallas Public Library Executive Director Kate Park told the news that “about 40,000 print books, audio books, CDs and DVDs” will be available for low prices. She added, “All library sales are a wonderful treasure hunt, and this is the biggest.”

The Friends of the Dallas Public Library Facebook page lists that the event will begin on August 11th from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., but only members have access at that time. Rest assured that although many voracious readers will be thumbing through the sale before latecomers get a chance, there will still be plenty left to choose on August 12th from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and the final day, August 13th, 1 – 4 p.m. Those hoping to snag some end-of-summer reads should show up early to the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, 1515 Young St., 1st Floor.
