It's that time of year again. The big book sale within the Overlook Golf Course Activity center. The Activity center also known as the community campus or "Roller Rink" is situated close to the driving range. This year like all others is sure to be a doozy. Voiunteers can show up Sunday around 8 and take part in settting up tables and such. We have done several of these over the years and can tell you some great deals can be had. They literally have thousands of books( 150,000), records, DVD'S, VHS tapes, books on tape, sheet music and Cd's. Trust me when i tell you that you don't want to miss this. Prices are literally a steal. A huge assortment of Children's books are always located in the right of the center and sure to be a hit again this year. To the Far left of the center are rare and specially marked books and sets. There's some real gems to be found here. If you're a book lover then this is a must for you. 

If you are volunteering please keep in mind that Book dealers are not allowed. Volunteers will also be needed to break down tables on wednesday at 6 p.m. You do not have to register to volunteer for setup or breakdown. Just show up!

They also need volunteers at the selling tables.

Parking is free and the event includes a snack bar for people's convenience. If you're interested in volunteering for this event simply call (717)295-1950. All Book Sales will benefit the Lancaster Public LIbrary. Overlook Activities Center is located on 2042 LItitz Pike in Lancaster. Hardcovers are 1$. Children's books and paperbacks are often priced at 25c to 50c. There is something for everyone of all ages.

  • Tuesday, September 23, 9 A.M - 9 P.M
  • ** Wednesday, September 24, 9 A.M - 6 P.M (HALF PRICE DAY)
You can also take part in other book sales as part of the Friends of the Lancaster County Library club. One such event is at the Phillip's Church.

Considering they made 73,000 last year, and knowing by being there that they only sold probably 5% of all the books there, i'd definetely say there's some good books to be had.

The show was great. Not sure if records will be broken again this year but there was certainly another great selection of books to choose from. Today is the last day. Keep in mind that books are half off today and that after 6 books can be gotten by the bagfuls for less than 3 dollars. I also suggest sticking around afterwards if you want some freebies.
