(Lakewood, Colo. - March 1, 2013) If you’re looking for a great deal on books, movies and music, the Jefferson County Library Foundation and Friends of JCPL will hold its annual March Madness Used Book Sale from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 8-9, and from 12-4 p.m. Sunday, March 10 in the Standley Lake Library Meeting Room, 8485 Kipling St., Arvada, Colo.
The sale will offer more than 7,000 books, CDs, DVDs, audiobooks and more. Most books will be available from 50 cents to $2.50, with hardback fiction for just $1. Sunday is Bag Day, where for $6 you can fill up a grocery bag full of items.
"The March Madness Book Sale is about more than finding your next great book," said Nancy Gruschow, books and outreach manager for the Library Foundation. "It's about contributing to the improved literacy of children across the county. As with all our book sales, the proceeds will help fund literacy programs for children and teens at Jefferson County Public Library, including the Summer Reading Club."
Last year the Jefferson County Library Foundation and Friends of JCPL raised more than $307,000 from these book sales to support library programs and services. More information is available on book sales and events at jeffcolibraryfoundation.org or by calling 303-403-5075.
