Incredible Deals on Thousands of Books During Friends of Redwood City Public Library's Gigantic Book Sale

Redwood City, CA - October 13, 2003 - The Friends of the Redwood City Public Library have been busily restocking supplies for their twice-yearly book sale, and that means incredible deals on every kind of book one might imagine. It happens from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, October 17th and 18th and from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 19th. The three-day event takes place at the Redwood City Public Library, located at 1044 Middlefield Road in Redwood City. All are welcome to come, browse, and get the deal of a lifetime on books!

The thousands of books for sale include best sellers, travel guides, children’s tales, and mysteries, many of them in mint condition. As a special incentive, Sunday October 19th is “bag day” during which a bag filled with books will sell for $5.00. Proceeds from the sale will be used to buy new books and other library materials, and to sponsor the Summer Reading Club for children and special programs for adults.

The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and helps our community to “understand the past, prepare for the future, and thrive in the present.” For more information about library events and services you may access the library’s home page at or call 780-7026.
