If you've ever asked for book recommendations on social media, you were likely overwhelmed by the responses. With so many online choices it can be tough to decide what to read next. Sometimes it's easier (and more fun) to flip through the pages in person to get a better sense of the story inside.
Now is a great time to do just that at the Friends of Madison Public Library (FMPL) book sale, February 22-25. Head to the first floor of Central Library, 201 W. Mifflin St., to browse the huge selection of books for every age and interest. You never know what you might find!
"There is no better way to spend time on a cold winter day than cozying up with a good book," the news release said.
With most items priced at $2 or less, it's also an opportunity to stock up on books that can fill up your neighborhood Little Free Library or be donated to local schools.
Current FMPL members, or those who join or renew at the sale ($5 per person or $10 per family), are eligible to select a free book. Feel good about your purchases and membership, which help support programs and services at the Madison Public Library and other neighborhood libraries throughout the city.
And if you have items to donate, click here to learn more. FMPL accepts all genres of books in good condition with the exception of textbooks. CDs, DVDs, audiobooks, and some special interest magazines are also welcome.
The hours of the February book sale are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 1-3 p.m. Sunday (bag sale). For information, visit www.friendsmpl.com.
