Ready to dive into a new adventure? Maybe you're the type who prefers the twists and turns of a good mystery. Perhaps a trip to the far reaches of the cosmos is more your speed, or you enjoy a steamy romance story. Whatever your flavor, you're sure to find something you'll love during the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library Foundation's Summer Book Sale this weekend.

The sale is set for this Saturday and Sunday (August 5th and 6th, 2023) from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday, and from Noon to 3:00 PM on Sunday at Washington Square Mall on Evansville's east side. The sale will not only be a great opportunity to stock up on a few "new to you" materials but a chance to replace a few things that may have seen better days due to overuse, or the family dog using them as a chew toy.

More Than Just Books


Before streaming became a big thing, my family and I would go to the library to rent DVDs. I also liked going through the CD collection to find new artists to listen to. That way, if the album wasn't any good, I didn't waste money on it. Both DVDs and CDs will also be available for purchase during the sale which will give you the opportunity to discover something new or replace a movie or album that's seen better days.

Prices on all available materials will be dirt cheap, ranging anywhere between 50 cents to $2.00. However, some specialty items will be priced over $2.00. Be sure to have cash on you before go. Even though credit or debit cards can be used to pay, a minimum $10 purchase is required to do so.

Proceeds from the sale will be used by the EVPL Foundation to help them continue to "support library programs and services, emerging technologies, collections, staff engagement, and special library projects and initiatives.," according to the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library website.

Make sure to bring some bags with you to carry your haul of goodies home.
