The Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum are sorting, marking and arranging books and other materials in preparation for their Super Summer Booksale, scheduled for Thursday, July 10, through Saturday, July 12.
An additional hour is being offered for the July sale, which runs 4 – 8 pm on Thursday; 10 – 4 pm on Friday and Saturday. The Thursday evening hours are, as always, reserved exclusively for members of the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum. Those who would like to join the Friends may do so at the sale door for as little as $10.
The sale will offer books for children, teens and adults; DVDs, CDs, VHS cassettes, Vinyl LPs and books on cassette; classics and collector items. Many items are in gift-giving condition. Inventory is organized by category and prices start at 25¢.
This summer sale offers an especially strong collection of classical and opera music CDs, audio & video tapes and books. A large selection cookbooks and travel books will also be available.
As a new service, arrangements have been made for shoppers to have their book selections held while they browse for more.
Make plans now to shop ’til you drop!
Proceeds from the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum booksale support library activities, especially the Children’s Summer Reading Club and the adult programming series.
