The end of summer is nigh!
Or, at least, sufficiently nigh that we’re planning sales so that you have lots to read when the autumn winds start to blow. And if those winds don’t do their thing, feel free to take the books into the sunshine or into the shade of a big tree.
Sale #1: The Back-to-School Sale
Labour Day is late this year, and that last week may be enough to break the camel’s back. Stock up on a few books for the kids (they may as well wrap their minds around getting back to the school work), some National Geographics to keep them occupied in the car, and a couple of novels to go with your morning coffee.
Sale #2: The Teachers’ Sale
(Saturday, September 19th, from 1:00 to 4:00)
Contrary to popular opinion, teachers are not given huge budgets with which to purchase educational materials: most teachers have several bookcases full of resources that have been paid for out-of-pocket. We think things should be a little easier for the teachers, so we’re continuing our annual offering of cheap kids’ books (useful as prizes or bribes) and educational resources.
Of course, we’re not checking credentials at the door. If you’re a private teacher, a tutor, a homeschooler–an educator of any sort–you may find useful items at this sale.
The sale is held in the activity rooms in the Children’s section of Central Library.
