Book Sales & Events

Book Sales >  

Our popular 2-day book sales occur twice a year at the Sharp Park Library community room.  The first sale is the beginning of June, and the second is the 2nd weekend of December.

The book sale times are: Friday 11 am – 6 pm & Saturday 10 am – 4 pm.

Our major fundraisers are our popular book sales. We have two large two day book sales each year in June and December with occasional supplementary sales.  We collect donated books at the Sharp Park Library throughout the year, only stopping for one week before each sale which allows us time to organize the books.  Pacificans are great readers with a wide range of interests.  Our categorized non- fiction testifies to this, and it’s always interesting to see what books are coming in.  The sale starts on a Friday and continues on Saturday until 4 pm.  Besides the huge variety of books: children’s, young readers, graphic novels, military fiction, mysteries, romance, and all the non-fiction categories, we have a silent auction featuring items of particular interest.  The audio-visual section includes CDs, DVDs, and books on disk.  We also have some “special” books marked with yellow price dots that have very reasonable prices. 

The book sale prices are bargains:

  • $1.00 for hardcover,
  • $0.50 for softcover.
  • Children’s books are half that price: $0.50 for hardcover and $0.25 for softcover.
  • DVDs are $2.00,
  • CDs are $1.00 (music),
  • Books on Tape are $2.00,
  • Books on Disk are $3.00.
  • We also have some ‘special’ books available at very reasonable prices.  They are marked with a round, yellow price dots with the bargain price noted.

Closed: Sunday, Monday and Friday.
Open: Tuesday 12-8, Wednesday 12-8, Thursday 10-5, & Saturday 10-5.

*The restricted hours are a result of having to split the 60 hours of service that the library provides between two locations.  The funding for extra hours of service with a match from the city and Joint Powers Authority for Libraries was eliminated from the city’s budget last June.
