Ernest Hemingway once said, "there is no friend as loyal as a book." Books open the world up to everyone, no matter what their financial or geographical situation happens to be at the moment. Libraries help make these adventures available to everyone. To help clear out old inventory and raise money for programs provided by all of Ventura's libraries, come to the Ventura Bag o' Books Sale this Saturday, November 6th.
Ventura Bag o'Books Sale 2021
The Ventura Friends of the Library organized this special book sale as a fun way to help out the libraries as well as the public. Pick up some books to fill your home library up at the bargain-basement price of just $1 for three books. Or fill a paper shopping bag full of your favorite tomes to read at your leisure for just $4 for the entire bag. Friends of the Library members receive a $1 discount on the full bag price. So, pay just $3 for a whole bag of adventures.
Books will be available for sale either in front of the library or in the Topping Room. Also, feel free to visit the library's book store inside. In addition to the books, check out the watercolors and photographs for sale in the Topping Room as well. (Hint: they make great Christmas, birthday, anniversary, or hostess gifts this holiday season.)
