The CALS Used Book Sale Returns at a New Location

Bookworms, rejoice. The sale your shelves have been craving is almost here. 

Thanks to the next Friends of Central Arkansas Libraries (FOCAL) Used Book Sale on March 7-9, your shelves (and wallets) will have never been happier. 

As the CALS Main Library undergoes extensive renovations, this season’s sale will take place at the Port Industrial Hub at 7773 Sloane Drive, where CALS administration offices are currently located.

Sale hours are 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, where paperbacks books will be available for just $1, hardbacks for $2 and teachers get an extra 25% off. A FOCAL membership will get you into the preview shopping event on Thursday from 3-5 p.m. 

Despite the construction, CALS is encouraging neighbors to continue donating books to help fuel these seasonal sales, with hopes of hosting them more often.

The book sale helps provide funds for the library’s Six Bridges Book Festival, Summer @ CALS, Arkansas Sounds concerts and other public programs across CALS’ 14 branch locations.
