Palisades Book Sale [SPA Event]

18 Mar

For the bookworm/bargain shopper in all of us, the SPAs have found a book sale that is sure to satisfy. This Saturday at the Palisades Library (down the street from the Vern) we’re headed over to their annual book sale.

Most books will be $1, with a $10 per bag option as well. There is also a discount room, with books at $0.25 and $3 per bag. Bring your own bag(s), because the selection is FANTASTIC. Make sure to have some cash on hand, and the sale’s proceeds will support this library.

Meet Rebekah Johnson at the West Hall Vern Express stop for a leisurely walk over at 1:30 pm on Saturday, the 23rd of March. See y’all then!
