Book sale coming

NORMAN — The Friends of the Norman Library has scheduled its annual Better Book Sale to begin Friday and continue through May 5 in the Lowry Room of the Norman Public Library, 225 N. Webster Ave. Admission is free, but hours vary by day of the sale.

The sale opens at 6 p.m. Friday and continues until 9 p.m. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and May 5 hours are 1 to 5 p.m.

On May 5, all remaining items will be discounted 50 percent.

“Better books” are those especially selected for reader interest, appearance and condition. Shoppers may find first editions, hard-to-find, out-of-print titles and an occasional rare book.

Browsers will find large coffee table volumes along with books relating to Oklahoma, western Americana, Native Americans, American literature and many University of Oklahoma Press titles.

This year’s offerings include a selection of history and military history. Children’s books and vintage magazines also will be available.

While some may be priced higher, buyers will find most books are in the $2 to $5 range.

The Norman Public Library will benefit from the proceeds of the sale. Buyers also may make cash donations and join the Friends of the Norman Public Library at the check-out desk.

For more information, call the library at 701-2600.
