Cedar Rapids Public Library Book Sale: Recycled Books Help More Than Mother Earth

Cedar Rapids – October 22, 2012 – It’s easy to call Mother Earth a tree hugger.  After all, she has a vested interest in saving the planet.  Anything that will “reduce, reuse, or recycle” is high on her list.  So it’s no surprise she’s a big fan of the Annual Book Sale, sponsored by the Friends of the Cedar Rapids Public Library.

“It’s the most intellectually stimulating recycling program in the City of Cedar Rapids!” Mother says.  “Where else can you spend so little money for such a big gain?  Kids win; adults win; and the Public Library wins!”

This year’s book sale will be held in the former Von Maur store’s first floor at Westdale Mall on Cedar Rapids’ west side.  The 3-day sale opens on Friday, October 26 with early admission to the entire sale for $20 per person at 4 p.m., followed by general admission from 5 – 9 p.m. for $5 per person.  Admission on Saturday the 27th is $3 per person during the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  There is free admission on Sunday; sale hours run noon – 4 p.m.  Children 12 and under are admitted free on Friday and Saturday.

All purchases support the literacy programs of the Friends of the Cedar Rapids Public Library.
