Perhaps the favorite days of the fall for Barrington book lovers are coming up again this weekend, Nov. 2-3.
The Friends of the Barrington Public Library hold their annual used-book sale. It runs Saturday and Sunday in the Senior Center on the ground floor of the library/Peck center.
A benefit preview actually opens the sale on Friday evening, Nov. 1. For $20 per person, you can get the first look at the books from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. From 7:30 to 9 pm, you can also get a peek for $10 per person.
Friends of the Library members can get into the benefit preview for free.
Everyone gets into the book sale for free on Saturday and Sunday. Hours Saturday are 9 am to 5 pm. Sunday hours run from noon to 3 pm.
The sale always includes thousands of gently used books, including collectible editions and even out-of-print books donated to the Friends for the library Volunteers have sorted all the books into categories and subject areas. That makes it easy to fill up your arms or your backpack with books.
The prices make all the books extremely affordable as well. They’re practically a steal with paperbacks typical selling from a low of 50 cents and hardbound books going for a couple of dollars each. You’ve got to be able to fill up your bookshelves at those prices.
