The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library’s Used Book and Media Sale

Sale chairperson Ann Gruenewald says there’s a large supply of books-on-CD featured at the April sale, due to donations and the library cycling out some of its CD holdings.

The place to be is the Library’s second floor Used Book Hub at 500 Olde Towne Road in downtown Rochester.

Except for a few higher quality items that are priced individually, all hardcover and large softcover books are $1, paperbacks and children’s books are 50 cents. Also available are many DVDs, music CDs, books on CD, VHS tapes, puzzles and games that are also inexpensively priced.

The order of sale follows the usual pattern. The first day is a Presale for members of the Friends of the RHPL group, the library’s donor support arm. They get first look at the items in stock on Wednesday April 24 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Memberships (individual $20; family $35; Student/Senior $10; Senior Couple $20) may be purchased that evening at the door.

The general sale to the public is Thursday, April 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The sale closes on April 28 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. It is the popular Bag Day, where you can buy anything that fits into a grocery bag for $5. Note that sale hours are not the same as library service hours.

Proceeds go to the Friends of the RHPL, which is the library’s prime non-public support group and is dedicated to promoting a closer relationship between the library and its constituents through fund raising and special events.
