Voorhees Library to Stage Giant 2-Day Spring Book Sale, June 8 & 9

 

Deals on up to 50,000 books, DVDs, CD’s, videos, books-on-tape, plus more

[Past used book sales at Vogelson Regional Branch Library in Voorhees have always drawn hundreds of shoppers because of the quantity, quality and deep discounts on items sold.]

 

VOORHEES, NJ – May 23, 2012- The M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library of the Camden County Library System will hold its annual spring book sale on Friday, June 8, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturday, June 9, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

“It’s one of the biggest library used-book sales in South Jersey. Typically people are lined up and waiting when the doors open for one of our sales,” said Voorhees Branch Manager William Brahms, who manages the event.

The library plans to offer up to 50 thousand books, CDs, videos, books-on-tape and more for sale at drastically reduced prices. Brahms said about ninety percent of the items are donated by patrons, collectors and estates, with used library materials making up only about ten percent of the items sold.

Typically hundreds of book-lovers, bargain hunters and book dealers from the tri-state area are attracted to the event where 99 percent of the items will be priced between fifty cents and two dollars with nothing over three dollars, Brahms stressed.

The items will be organized by subject for easy location. With a warehouse storage room full of books, the supply during the two-day sale will be continually replenished. So there is a reason to check out the sale on both days. Brahms said there will be no previews of the stock on sale

All proceeds from the sale go to support programs for customers of the Camden County Library System.

For more information about the sale Brahms can be reached at 856-772-1636 x7308 or wbrahms@camdencountylibrary.org .
