This is the week for the summer used book sale at the Springville Library.
The semi-annual book sale, held twice a year (every June during Art City Days, and again in the Fall), is a fundraising opportunity for residents to purchase books, DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, etc. at bargain prices. Just $1 for most hardback books, and only 50 cents for paperback books. Also for sale are DVDs, CDs, magazines, and more.
The Springville Library is located at 45 South Main Street. The book sale runs Tuesday, June 5, through Friday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. This sale fills the entire upper floor. You’re sure to find something to delight, as well as a summer adventure without even having to pack a suitcase.
