Tech library hosting book sale

To the editor:

The Friends Annual Used Book Sale is scheduled for April 5 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom on Michigan Tech’s campus.

On April 4, Friends members get first choice from 5-7 p.m. Memberships cost $20 and are available at the door. Memberships for students and seniors are $15.

On Friday, the sale continues to the general public from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. with a new selection of withdrawn books. The $5 bag sale is from 4-5 p.m.

If you have only a few book sale donations, you may drop them off in the box located in the library’s vestibule.

If you have a box or bag of books, you may unload them at the library’s loading dock. Call 487-2508 to have someone meet you at the back door to help.

If you need help getting your book sale donations to the library, please contact Dana Richter to make arrangements for a pickup. For more information call 482-3361 or email

There is free parking in all university lots after 4 p.m.

The book sale uses standardized pricing for many books, with hardback books priced at $2 and quality paperback books for $1. Mass market paperbacks (the ones that fit in your back pocket) are a bargain at 50 cents. Antique or special sets are priced separately.
