Highland Park — Bargain hunters are encouraged to stock up on gently-used books, CDs, DVDs and audio books at the Highland Park Public Library’s used book sale that runs through Saturday, Nov. 17.
The sale is spearheaded by the Friends of the Library and takes place at the library, 494 Laurel Ave., Highland Park.
Offerings include children’s books, cookbooks and “how to” tomes. Prices range from 25-cents for paperbacks to 50-cents for most hardcovers.
While admission is free Thursday, Nov. 15, through Saturday, Nov. 17, the sale kicked off with a preview night from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 that is free to Friends of the Library members and $15 for non-members.
Regular sale hours run from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday and from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
Proceeds of the sale enable the 50-year-old Friends organization to fund additional items and services that cannot be purchased through the library’s budget. The funds have been used to purchase computers for public use and cover events such as film series and performances by the Shakespeare Project of Chicago.
