It’s time for the Libraries book sale!

Share

You wait all year for the Friends of the Libraries Frank B. Armstrong Memorial Book Sale—now it’s finally here!

All next week—April 17-21—come to the tent in the Brickyard to find bargains on armfuls of books about every subject under the sun. The full sale schedule is below. The book sale turns 25 this year and is a wonderful way to support the NCSU Libraries while finding some treasures. All proceeds from the sale directly benefit the Libraries’ endowment. The Friends of the Library is part of the NC State University Foundation.

Did you know that students can join the Friends of the Library for free? And that FOL members get first look at the books the first night of the sale, before it opens to the public? Take advantage of that!

Each annual book sale is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work by volunteers, students, the Libraries staff, and others. It's also a great way to recycle books through the community and to give the NCSU Libraries that extra boost needed to help us remain a world-class resource for NC State. Donations of books, CDs, DVDs, and audiotapes are welcome year-round at the D. H. Hill Library loading dock, on the Hillsborough Street side of the building, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. For more information, please call the Friends of the Library office at 919.515.2841.
