Fall Book Sale, Oct. 15-16

Friends of the Tehachapi Library

Coinciding with Tehachapi’s Apple Festival, the Tehachapi Friends of the Library’s “Big Book Sale” this year is on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is another 2-in-1 sale.

On Saturday there will be two areas of books set up in the library’s courtyard. The first area will have individually priced books, and will include a number of reasonably priced antique and other specialty books.

The second section of books for sale will be the ever popular “Bag Sale.” For these books you get a bag (bags provided) for $3 and then you can fill it up with the books from this area (our “Bag Sale” books are unsold leftovers from our Downstairs Book Store in the Library). This year we’re trying something new: if you want to shop the sale early, you may purchase a Friends of the Tehachapi Library “Community Membership” for $10/year to shop early from 10-11 a.m. on Saturday. Membership is good for all sales for one year. These Memberships can be purchased at the door Saturday morning.

On Sunday the sale becomes a “Clearance Sale.” Bag prices drop to $1 and the individually priced books will be 50% off. This helps clear out inventory to make sure we have “fresh” books for our next sale.

We are requesting no book donations until AFTER the sale - we have no more room to store them! Please keep your donations til after Apple Festival, we can start processing them again at that time. We could also really use “Lifters” (capable of lifting 30 pounds) who can help set up the sale Friday afternoon (3 to 6 p.m.) on Oct. 14. “Lifters” who help with sale setup can also “shop early” after setup is complete. Please call or text (661) 750-2818 or email [email protected] to sign up.
