The Friends of Jefferson County Public Library's Fall Whale of a Used Book Sale is just one week away! More than 100,000 books, movies, CDs, records, and audiobooks will be for sale starting at just 50 cents - say what?!

The Sale takes place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25-26, and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27 at the Jeffco Fairgrounds. Admission to the sale is free.

Teachers, home-school educators and parents will find a plethora of books for their in-class or home library, and everyone can find holiday bargains for friends and fellow book, movie and music lovers. And, as always, Bert's Curiosity Corner has an eclectic collection of vintage books and an extensive assortment of books on Colorado and western history. These books are individually priced.

As these sales have become more popular, the crowds have grown. If you're looking to avoid the masses? Saturday is a great day to come for leisurely shopping.But, if it's a bargain of epic proportions you're looking for, Sunday is the day for you. It's Bag Day where $6 buys as many items as will fit in a grocery-sized bag. 

If you want to get a jump on the merchandise, consider joining the Friends group. The Preview Sale takes place from 6-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 and is open to Friends members only. Download the application now or join at the door.

Although her parents are renowned Shakespearean actors, Miranda's performance in a school play is disastrous.  Before she can get away to hide, Stephen, a castmate, whisks her to sixteenth century England to meet--and save--the young Will Shakespeare.  Pamela Mingle has been a teacher, a librarian and now she is a writer.  When Mingle discovered Shakespeare may have been a school teacher it planted the seed for Kissing Shakespeare.  One of Milgle's favorite books from 2012 is Grave Mercy, a book I loved as well!  

Meet Pamela Mingle and other authors at the Books and Bites events at the Arvada Library on September 20, 6-8:30.
