Book Mania

The 33rd Annual Used Book Sale will take place July 24 – 26 at the Sturgeon Bay Library, 107 S. 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay.

The sale kicks off with a special Friends members-only preview on July 24, 5 pm to 8:30 pm (non-members can join at the door; $10 for an annual membership). The general public is invited on July 25, from 9 am to 5 pm, and on July 26, from 9 am to 1 pm. The flat price for an entire bag of books is $3.

Sorted and categorized for easy browsing, the sale offers thousands of titles, with the majority priced at $1 a volume. In addition to a wide range of fiction, there is also a huge selection of non-fiction on myriad topics, as well as children’s books, CDs and DVDs.
