RACINE — The Lobby Book Sale for May at the Racine Public Library, 75 Seventh St., will feature historical fiction for adults and works related to Mother’s Day for children. In addition to these special displays, there is always a selection of fiction, nonfiction and audiovisual materials for children, teens and adults.
Children's books are priced at 50 cents, whether hardcover or paperback. Adult hardcovers are $1 and paperbacks are 50 cents. DVDS are $2, compact discs are $1 and audio books are specially priced. Like-new books (see the shelf labelled "new books") are specially priced at $5 or less.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Racine Public Library, the proceeds from the sales support the services and programs of the library. The Lobby Sale is open during regular library hours: 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
In addition to the Lobby Sale, the Friends hold spring and fall book sales, which include a larger stock of books, AV and related materials. The Friends are seeking donations of books, DVDs, CDs, VHS, art, sheet music, and toys. Donations may be dropped off at the Circulation Desk during regular library hours.
