- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
We all know that libraries have books for just about any topic we can think of; but have you ever wanted to read books about ... um... books?! Even with a growing interest in electronic books, eReaders, and just reading from a computer/phone/laptop, there is always going to be an interest in the bound paper of a printed book.
In The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett, a chronic book thief steals not for the potential money he could make from snatching rare books, but for the idea of posessing them all. Ironically enough, this fascinating read is also available as an eBook! For those wanting to know more about book collecting, The Official Price Guide to Collecting Books, is a great place to start to get an idea of the book trade industry, how to care for rare books, and what books are worth looking for.
And for those ready to start their personal libraries, or for current collectors, the Friends of the Edenvale Branch Library will have its quarterly book sale this Saturday, January 22nd, from 10am-6pm! There will be many great deals and perhaps even a couple hidden treasures amongst the many used books/CDs/DVDs/etc. up for grabs! All sales go to funding programs at the Edenvale Branch Library!
