TOPEKA -- The Friends of the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library are “lighting the way” to its annual book sale Friday, Sept. 18th from 6–9pm, Saturday, Sept. 19th, from 9am–5pm, and Sunday, Sept. 20th from 1–5pm in the Kansas Expocentre Agriculture Hall. Friday is for “members only,” but you can become a member at the door for $15 for an individual or $25 for a family. Admission is free and open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.
Colorful posters and bookmarks featuring a lighthouse in a sea of sunflowers are being posted all over Topeka to encourage the community to “follow the light” to the annual book sale of used books and other material. This sale offers more than 100,000 used books, magazines, records, CDs, and DVDs and VHS tapes at a reasonable (some say cheap) price. Best sellers, humor, mystery, children’s books and paperback fiction can be found on tables in Ag Hall. Special and rare items are located in the “medium rare” section, and include first editions, collectible volumes, autographed copies and rare and unusual subjects.
Funds from the Friends of the Library Book Sale are used to support the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library.
