For the 46th year in a row, the San Francisco Public Library is holding their multi-day Annual Big Book Sale. The best part? On Sunday, all the books are only $1, and children’s books are 25 cents each.
Funds generated from the sale go toward the public library system.
Huge Selection of Books and Other Media at the 46th Annual Big Book Sale
Due to new 5000 square-foot donation center, this year’s Annual Big Book Sale promises to be much larger than ever before with 100,000 more books than last year. The SF Public Library will be offering DVDs, CDs, books on tape, and vinyl in addition to about half a million books for sale.
Also available are wide selection of literary crafts and ephemera as well as a Best of Book Bay section showcasing collectible and rare books. Some of the most rare specialties for sale include an early American edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ ‘The Decoration of Houses’ by Edith Wharton and Ogden Codman Jr. (1897), ‘American Hawking’ by Hans J. Peeters and E.W. Jameson, Jr. and more.
Can’t Make it Sunday, September 26?
The Big Book Sale actually began on September 22 this year, so if you can’t make it for the dollar sale on Sunday, then check it out any day this weekend. Remember: though books are only $1 on Sunday, they’ll never cost more than $5 during the rest of the sale.
You can catch smaller versions of the $1 sale monthly at the 438 Treat Ave. Donation Center. Coming dates include October 9, November 13 and December 11.
