Seven library Friends groups are pooling their inventory for a large book sale from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday, June 4, at Madison Public Library’s Service & Support Center, 1301 W. Badger Road. All proceeds will benefit Madison Public Library. 

“Last year’s first-ever joint book sale was so successful, raising thousands of dollars to support Madison’s libraries,” said Kathy Schneider, President of the Friends of Pinney Library and coordinator of this year’s sale. “We’re especially grateful to American Girl, who donated two pallets of their iconic children’s books for this sale, which we think will be very popular.”

The sale — which will include gently used and donated books, CDs, DVDs and audiobooks — will be held rain or shine. Prices are as follows:

  • hardbound books – $2
  • paperback books – $1
  • children’s hardbound books – $1
  • children’s paperback and board books – 50 cents
  • CDS, DVDs, and audiobooks on CD – $1

Inventory will be replenished throughout the day, and there will be a bag sale from 3–4 p.m. for $5 per bag. The Friends accept cash, check or credit card payment.
