“A once-in-a-lifetime sale!” That’s how Glendale libraries’ Project Manager Carolyn Flemming described the weekend, dollar-a-bag-sale at the Central Library. Those bags could be stuffed with as many books as each would take. Also available for sale were used chairs and tables for $25 each.
But it was the books that dozens of customers wanted as they crowded the library auditorium Saturday and Sunday. They were able to sort through thousands of hardbacks and paperbacks representing nonfiction, fiction, children’s and teens’ books.
Glendale residents Kevin and Jean Lee were accompanied by their 9-month-old daughter, Noelle Lee. The Lee family was looking for children’s books. They found some, judging from their bulging book bag.
