Book lovers are invited to attend a special holiday book sale from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening, Nov. 17 at the Library Community Room, 1115 El Centro Street, South Pasadena 91030. Wine and cheese will be served to those attending the special annual “preview” sale held by the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, an almost 70-year-old organization that supports the library.
Included among hundreds of gift-quality and gently used books are art books, children’s books, cookbooks, fiction and non-fiction books. They represent the best of all donations made throughout the year to the non-profit organization. Free gift wrapping is available for purchased books.
Attendees must be a member of the Friends or donate to the library. Current library supporters have received a green postcard in the mail that admits two. Those interested in attending who are not Friends members can become one or donate that night at a nominal cost and enjoy the exclusive sale. Purchases can be made with cash or check.
