KU libraries set book sale
For the first time in many years, Kansas University's libraries will have book sales to repurpose duplicate volumes and those that do not meet collection guidelines.
The first sale will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3, through Thursday, Dec. 6, in Watson Library on KU's Lawrence campus. Subsequent sales are scheduled for February 4 -7, March 3-6, April 7-10 and May 5-8, all in Watson Library. During the sale weeks, Mondays will be reserved for patrons with a KUID; sales will be open to the public on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. A bag sale will be offered from 4-8 p.m. on Thursdays.
Hardcover books will be priced at $3 and paperback books will be $1. Payments can be made with cash or Master Card or Visa credit or debit cards.
Proceeds from the sales will be used to purchase new books and electronic resources for the libraries' collections. Unsold books will be donated to Books for Africa, a nonprofit organization dedicated to literacy programs in Africa.
