Book Sale

Science fiction and mysteries will be the featured categories in the Feb. 1 book sale of the Nevada County Friends of the Libraries.

Held in the basement of Nevada City’s Doris Foley Historical Library, 211 N. Pine St., the 9 a.m. to 3 p.m sale offers hundreds of hardcover and paperback books of fiction and non-fiction, covering both mature and children’s literature. Old and rare books are also offered.

Sale proceeds from the volunteer-staffed event help to fund book purchases and special needs of Nevada County’s three libraries.

The public may drop off books in good condition in identified containers at Long’s Drug Store on Sutton Way and Raley’s supermarket, Freeman Lane, both in Grass Valley. Lack of space prevents Friends of the Libraries from accepting textbooks, incomplete sets of books and magazines.
