A full bookshelf not only provides a conversation piece for guests, but it also lessens the odds they'll pull out the tome that triggers the trapdoor to your Don Knotts shrine. Build up book collections and safeguard secrets with today's Groupon to the Friends of the Library spring book sale, which will take place at the Z.J. Loussac Public Library on Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, get $10 worth of books, CDs, DVDs, and records.
- For $10, get $20 worth of books, CDs, DVDs, and records.
A merry band of volunteer bookworms, the Friends of the Library dedicate their efforts to providing libraries in Anchorage, Eagle River, and Girdwood with the financial support to expand their collections and programs. The biannual book sale hawks tens of thousands of used books, CDs, DVDs, records, and ancient sea scrolls. Literature lovers can breathe in the musty aroma of antique publications on Saturday, and thrifty shoppers can survey the categorized sections for half-price treasures on Sunday. Although prices vary depending on the item, most range from $0.25 to $2.
Bibliophiles can also become a member for VIP admission to all book sales, as well as a two-hour preview and complimentary breakfast, featuring wheat toast with the ending of Stephen King's newest thriller written in strawberry jelly. Members are also invited to participate in annual membership meetings, election of the Friends of the Library Board, and emailed notifications of news and events.
