Inflation got you down? Some of the cheapest prices in town ($1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardbacks!) can be found at the CALS Used Book Sale, which will run from March 7-9 at a new location.

While the Main Library is undergoing major renovations, the book sale will take place at the Port Industrial Hub (7773 Sloane Dr.), which has housed CALS’ administrative offices since the flagship branch shuttered in September to make way for construction.


Hours for the sale are 3-5 p.m. on Thursday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, though Thursday is only open to 2023 and lifetime Friends of CALS members, or library donors who have given $25 or more to the CALS Foundation or Friends of CALS in the last year.

The next CALS Used Book Sale is scheduled for July 11-13.
