Chino Hills’ new library opens Feb. 28 and with 60,000 books it sounds well-stocked. But this weekend, the old library is holding a moving sale, selling purged or donated material at fire sale prices. Everyone else is liquidating, so why not a library?
“We are selling the books, with a few exceptions, for $5 per bag,” says Geri Moore of Friends of the Library. She adds: “The bag is the size of a paper grocery bag and we supply the bags.”
Free bags too? This deal just got even better.
“We have a wide variety of books,” Moore says. “We have a large selection of children’s books. In addition, we have adult fiction and non-fiction (cookbooks, biographies, travel, crafts, and large coffee table books) in both hardcover and paperback.”
Various “antique” books, VHS tapes, DVDs and CDs will be priced individually. Maybe you still get a free bag. Shelving, display racks, carts and other odds and ends will also be sold.
C’mon, you know you’ve always wanted your very own library cart.
The sale will be held in the old library building at 2003 Grand Ave., in the old Civic Center complex, on Friday from noon to 8 p.m., on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
The Friends of the Library is hosting the sale, with proceeds to help fill gaps in funding at the new library. Friends, for instance, pays for some reading programs and bought children’s furniture for the new library.
