Bargain prices as library sells off used books

The Campbell River branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library is clearing out the old to make way for the new.

The Campbell River branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library is clearing out the old to make way for the new.  For the month of January, all used books are available at clearance prices.

Children’s and teen materials, mass market paperbacks, and a few cassettes and VHS videos are all selling for only $.25 each.  Large paperbacks and hardcover books for adults are selling for the bargain price of $.50.

Timothy Skye, Library Manager, notes that the Vancouver Island Library is constantly purchasing many new and popular items so older items need to be removed to make room on the shelves.

“This is part of our continuing effort to keep our collection attractive and up to date,” he said.

The library invites the community to drop in and browse the items on sale until the end of the month at 1240 Shoppers Row.  Perhaps you will find that elusive title that you have been searching for, a book or video on your favourite hobby, or a fantastic fiction author you have never noticed before.
