Area residents will soon have more options to shop for cheap-but-quality books through the sales hosted by Lawrence Public Library Friends & Foundation, which supports the library.

This week will be the last for the organization’s mini-sales it was hosting on Facebook due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but LPLFF program coordinator Angela Hyde told The Lawrence Times that it’s still offering by-appointment personal shopping options.

Beginning May 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., LPLFF will start monthly mini-sales.

There will be limits to how many shoppers can be inside to browse available books at 707 Vermont St. (on the Kentucky Street side of Lawrence Public Library), but shoppers will be able to reserve an indoor spot in advance, Hyde said.

Events such as book sales are what allowed LPLFF to provide a $142,000 block grant donation to the library in 2020.

Here’s what to expect, price-wise, at an LPLFF book sale:

$2 Hardcovers

$1 Paperbacks & Graphic Novels

50¢ Mass Markets & Comics

$1 CDs, DVDs, Video Games & Puzzles

$2 Audio books

$1 Children’s & Young Adult Hardcovers

50¢ Children’s & Young Adult Paperbacks & Board Books
