Sale at the Book Place

We’re having another Clearance Sale! The Friends of Marin County Library will have a three-day sale September 25-27 at the Book Place. The sale features 50% off the already-low prices storewide on books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs, and more. Sale prices start at 25 cents for some children’s books, and prices throughout the store range from $1.00-2.00 for most books; individually-priced books, current titles and collectibles are half off the sticker price.

Pre-selection/holding of materials prior to the start of the sale is not permitted. Sale hours are Friday and Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm, and Sunday, noon-4 pm. Replenishment will continue throughout the sale, so return to find more deals. Cash and check only, please, (no bills larger than $20 are accepted).

The Book Place is located at 1608 Grant Avenue, near 7th Street, in downtown Novato. There is ample parking behind the store (enter off 7th Street). Our phone number is 415-209-0212. All proceeds benefit county library programs and materials.
