Last week Thanksgiving heralded the beginning of the holiday season and today we’ve put out gift worthy books on a variety of topics, which are $2 each, as well as $1 materials for the Andersen Library’s monthly sale. The latter include books (literature and history), media (albums, CDs, DVDs), and children’s games.
Come on over and peruse the shelves. Perhaps something will strike your fancy and you’ll put money in the payment box in exchange for it. We hope all these items find new forever homes.
This month the prices will drop to $.25/each on the last day of the semester (Dec. 22), so be sure to swing on by before you head home for winter break. New materials will be put out before spring semester begins on January 22.
