Friends of University Branch Library to Host Winter Book Sale Fundraiser

(FORT BEND COUNTY) - The Friends of the University Branch Library will host a Winter Book Sale on Saturday, Jan. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in Meeting Room 1 of the library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.




People who love books, people who love bargains, and people who need to get rid of some spare change will find a lot in common at the book sale, where they will discover adult and children’s books, all at prices that are hard to beat.


Items of special interest at this book sale include jazz CDs (Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Thelonious Monk), religious studies and inspirational books, literature anthologies and collectible sets.


Also available are adult fiction and nonfiction books, foreign-language books (especially Chinese), infant and toddler books, Young Adult teen and “tween” selections, homeschool materials and textbooks, and special-interest books.


 Prices range from 50¢ to $2.00, with special items slightly higher. Checks or cash are accepted; bills larger than $20 cannot be accepted.


 Donations of gently used books (fiction and nonfiction adult, youth, and children’s hardback and paperback books that are clean and not torn), CDs, DVDs are always welcome and may be taken to the library throughout the year during regular business hours. Textbooks published within the past five years are also accepted.
