Do you miss the (somewhat) annual book swaps Artists of Utah used to hold? Well, here’s two options for you: 1) Comment at the end of this post, and maybe we’ll revive them 2) Check out the art books available at the Salt Lake City Library’s annual book sale this weekend.
Generally we don’t like to trumpet the library’s annual book sale. That’s because we don’t want anyone snatching up the great deals before we have a chance to go through them. But we’ve gotten word that this year the library has a large selection of art books, music books and other coffee table-style books for sale, and since we haven’t been organizing our own book swaps it seemed only fair to inform you, our dear readers, of what is going on.
Every six months the Salt Lake City Library system trims its collection. They take excess books from all of their branches and bring them to the bottom floor of the Main Library for a massive sale. The proceeds go to the library, so they can buy new books, which means they will once again need to cull their collection and the whole process repeats itself.
The Spring 2013 sale begins on April 11. “This year, more than ever before, we have a huge, huge selection of used books in very good condition on all subject available for sale at very reasonable prices,” says Jeanine Marlowe of Friends of the City Library. “In particular, we are overflowing with English (literature, classics, etc), History, Arts (huge music selection this year) including CD’s Audio books, movies and on and on.”
