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.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
