The Evanston Public Library will hold its spring book sale from May 2 to 4 in the third-floor book-sale room of the Main Library, 1703 Orrington Ave. Buyers can expect to browse through a collection of vintage books from the recently closed Bookman’s Alley; discover an array of children’s books ready for the discerning buyer and gift-giver; find the usual array of top condition fiction and non-fiction at low, low prices. The Evanston Public Library Book Sale has been named “The Best Used Book Sale” by the Chicago Reader.

All proceeds from the sale benefit the Evanston Public Library. Last year, Evanston Public Library Book sales raised $60,000 for the Library.

Book-sale hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. May 2 and 3, with an early-bird preview from 10 a.m. to noon on May 2 with a $5 admittance fee – at all other times there is no admission price. From noon to 5:30 p.m. on May 4, all books will be sold at half-price.
