If you need some easy reading to enjoy over the upcoming holidays, you can grab some leisure reading at the library! Or if you are looking to add a few used nonfiction books to your home library, we have some of those too. We have two book racks of items available without any check out or overdue restrictions: the Book Sale Rack and the Book Swap Rack.
BOOK SALE RACK: Buy some great books for 50 cents or $1.00! Oboler Library has been having an ongoing book sale for almost a year. If you’ve ever been to the Biennial Used Book Sale, you’ll remember what good books we had!
The sale started a year ago and is continuing. Items offered for sale are available near the New Books area of the First floor. It includes academic books, nonfiction, and some fiction. This “stock” will be replenished as needed, and more books are being added regularly!
Books cost $1.00 for hardback and $ .50 for paperback. You can pay for them at the Circulation desk. So, come by, have a look, and stop by regularly to see the new items that have been added. This is a great way to stock up on reading for school breaks, and to add to your home book collection.
BOOK SWAP RACK: This rack was installed as part of National Library Week, and moved into the student lounge area after the Book Sale Rack was installed. Many individuals have taken advantage of this service in swapping out desirable titles. Library staff have donated paperback books from their personal collections . Recently two library staff members have added more books to these racks.
A variety of genres are available on the rack, including westerns, thrillers, mysteries, classics, adventures, romances, and a little nonfiction. Come to the library to see what is available! Bring a paperback of your own to swap for a title that interests you. If you have multiple paperback books you are willing to share, or want to unclutter, please feel free to add them to our Book-Swap Rack so others in our campus community can enjoy a wider array of options for their reading pleasure.
