Sale supports public programming for kids, teens and adults at eight branches.

VOORHEES, N.J. – October 2, 2012 -- The Voorhees branch of the Camden County Library System will stage one of the largest used-book sales in South Jersey on Thursday, Oct. 11 and Friday, Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The library plans to offer over 50 thousand books, CDs, videos, books-on-tape, LPs and magazines for sale at drastically reduced prices.

“We make a great effort to provide quality items for our sale customers. We sort through thousands of donations removing poor-condition and outdated items. Buyers will find a very large selection of better-condition material, this year, mixed in with older, vintage and collectible items” said M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library Manager William Brahms.

He points out that over ninety percent of the items on sale are donated by patrons, collectors and estates.

“With ninety-nine percent of the items priced at two dollars or under, and with nothing over three dollars, the sale will attract hundreds of bargain seekers over the course of three days as it’s done in the past,” predicted Brahms.

The branch manager said there is a reason to visit the sale on more than one day since the display tables in the sale area on the first floor will be continually replenished with stock from a  large storage room full of materials during the three-day sale.

The items will be organized by subject for easy location, which is important given the large number of items that will be put out. However, no previews nor presales will be available to dealers or others.

The M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library is located at 203 Laurel Road across from the Voorhees Town Center, which is 14 miles from Philadelphia, ten miles from Camden and next to Cherry Hill. Directions can be found on the library website at

All proceeds from the sale will go to support programs for customers of the Camden County Library SystemThe Library welcomes volunteers to help staff the book sale. They can contact Karen Popelak at 772-1636 ext. 7339 or at
