Phoenix Public Library Hosts a Book Sale This Weekend

If you've exhausted the usual visits on your shopping go-to list and can't find the right fit for your special book-loving someone on our book lover gift guide, you'll want to stop by the Camelback Colonnade this weekend.

The Friends of the Phoenix Public Library will host its first-ever offsite book sale with more than 200,000 books, CDs, and DVDs in more than 80,000 sq ft (thanks to an empty, former Mervyn's).

Grab books for $2 per paperback and $4 for a hardback, CD, or DVD in addition to discounts for Phoenix Library Members, Military personnel, teachers, and City of Phoenix employees.

If you grab a FPPL bag on-site, you can fill it with books for just $20. All merchandise is 50% off on Saturday and 75% off on Sunday.

Get out there and buy some books for friends (or yourself) -- just please don't turn them into a headboard.

The Camelback Colonnade is at 1919 E. Camelback Road and the space wil be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.. For more info about the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library, check out the main website.
