The girls and I love to visit the library. During one visit a volunteer asked if we were there for the book sale. I LOVE a bargain so I hurried over to take a look. Why had I not ventured into this little treasure cove before? They are books donated to Friends of the Library Kingwood (F.O.L.K.) and listed for a mere fraction of retail price.
The volunteer, Dennis, was friendly and suggested books based on the girls ages and interests. I noticed a magazine selection, the Golf ones caught my eye. My husband is an avid golfer and I buy him these issues off the rack. I like them MUCH better when they’re cheap! 🙂 I grabbed a handful of magazines, stories from Mark Twain, and headed to the check out, followed by the girls with their books in tow.
I paid $20 for a FOLK membership to receive 15% off the already low price, what a deal! All of the proceeds go back into books for the library and the programs they offer.
Your local library may have a book sale area or have book sales from time to time. You may want to check with your library before heading to the book store to pay full price for something you need or want. Plus, you will get to help others in the process!
At our local library there is usually newspapers and family magazines set out on display by the entrance as well as a bulletin board with local events. This is a great way to keep up with events and local news or find an exciting activity for the kids.
If you are on a budget and your children love books and you love magazines, stop at your local library for some great finds!
