FotCCL Spring Book Sale To
Be Held April 7 to 9
The Friends of the Chatham
Community Library (FotCCL) will hold its Spring Book Sale on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 7, 8 and 9, at the library on
the campus of Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro, NC.
Hours of the sale are Thursday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.;
Friday, April 8, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, April 9, from
9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free, and purchases may be made by
cash or check — but no credit cards are accepted.
More than 17,000 hardbound and softbound books, plus DVDs, CDs, LPs,
audio books and more, will be available for purchase. Each sale
offers a completely new assortment of titles in very good to
excellent condition, and to make shopping easier all organized by
category, subject or format.
For this sale, there will be more than 700 vinyl LP records and
boxed sets from one discerning and careful collector, who took
excellent care of his collection. They include mostly jazz and swing
recordings from the '50s, '60s and '70s, with some classical, pop
and Broadway shows. Prices will be $2, $5 and $15. These all will be
available at half price on Friday, but not at all on Saturday.
Another popular feature of the Friends book sale is Claudia’s
Corner, which offers rare, noteworthy or special books starting at
$10. These books are in a special room and priced at no more than a
quarter to a third of their lowest value online. A list of these
books may be found on the FotCCL Website at
On Thursday, the first day of the sale, most hardcover books are $3;
trade paperbacks are $2; and small paperbacks are 50˘ ⎯ plus sales
of $200 or more are entitled to a 20% discount. On Friday, all books
and materials are half price, and on Saturday customers may fill
grocery bags with books and other materials they choose for $5 each,
with no limit to the number of bags. (At the sale, bags are
available free, compliments of local food stores.)
Members of the Friends of the Chatham Community Library receive an
additional discount of $3 on any day of the sale. This includes all
those who choose to join the Friends at the book sale.
Book lovers from all over North Carolina and nearby states travel to
Pittsboro for the FotCCL book sales because they’ve earned a solid
reputation for their outstanding selection and quality of books and
audio-visual materials — all of which are donated by Chatham County
and area residents.
