For immediate release: January 23, 2018
Book lovers can find sweet deals on rare and antiquarian books Feb. 10 and 11 at Douglas County Libraries in Highlands Ranch, James H. LaRue branch, 9292 Ridgeline Blvd. The special sale takes place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10, and from 12-3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 11, in the Shea meeting rooms on the library’s first floor.
Collectors can once again find an assortment of unique items at this year’s sale, including new and used antique books, signed copies, first editions, volume sets, collectible childhood favorites, art and photography books, and a variety of classics. CD and DVD gift items will also be on sale.
“You never know what you might find at our sale,” said Kim McClintock, branch volunteer coordinator at Douglas County Libraries in Highlands Ranch. “What could be better than browsing through such treasures and then taking some home to add to a personal collection or to enjoy?” she added.
Book prices are based on industry standard values, rarity and condition, and are then deeply discounted for the library sale. All proceeds benefit the Douglas County Libraries Foundation, which supports library programs and events that reach youth, adults and families in Douglas County and across Colorado.
Bargain shoppers can look forward to a great selection of finds on Saturday, McClintock said, and then more great bargains on Sunday. Credit cards and cash will be accepted, and volunteers will gladly carry buyers’ purchases to their cars.
In addition to the library’s annual book sale, Douglas County Libraries offers books, CDs and DVDs for purchase year-round in its Second Chapter Used Bookstores and during other special book sales.
