Easton Library to Hold Huge Holiday Book Sale

If there are any book lovers on your holiday shopping list, or you just love reading yourself, the Easton Area Public Library's main branch at 515 Church St. will be the place to stop in next weekend.

A book and media sale featuring about 40,000 items will be held there from Friday, December 6 to 10. Most hardcover books, books on CD, and DVDs will be priced at $1, and paperbacks and most children's books will be 50 cents.

About 90 percent of the sale items have been donated, and leftovers from the last sale have been removed, an announcement about the event said.

A preview sale for members of the Friends of the Library will be held in advance of the regular sale too, on Thursday, December 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. Those that are not currently members but wish to attend are invited to join the Friends of the Library. Membership forms are available at the main branch, both the Palmer and South Side branches, and also online at
