Coming up soon is one of my favorite events! I love books and I especially love to buy them at great prices at the Knox County Library Book Sale.
From their site:
The Friends Annual Used Book Sale will be Saturday, Feb 27 through Saturday, March 6, 2010 at the Knoxville Convention and Expo Center, World's Fair Park. We have received a record number of books and have not raised our prices in years! Most books for adults are $2 or less and $1 or less for children’s books. Be sure to check out our “Special Editions” room, too.
We have some great changes this year:
Member’s Preview Day has a NEW DAY and EXPANDED HOURS: SATURDAY, FEB 27; doors open at 11:00 a.m.
Expanded Weekday hours til 8:00 p.m.
Free Curbside Delivery: “You buy’em; we load ‘em.” Drive right up to the front door and we will load your purchases for you!
Enjoy more weekend shopping – The sale opens to the public on SUNDAY, Feb. 28 from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
And the sale concludes with our can’t-be-beat “Bag Sale Day” on Saturday, March 6 with NEW HOURS til 3:00 p.m. ($3 per bag or $5 per box!)
The event will be held at the Knoxville Convention and Expo Center at the Holiday Inn on the World’s Fair Park located on the downstairs level of the Holiday Inn Select. Nearby parking is available throughout the week and weekend. Note that many of the municipal lots do not charge parking fees on weekends or evenings.
