Shop at a Library Book Sale to Save Money

We went to our first Library Book sale today in Clearfield, Utah. What a great way to shop inexpensively for discontinued and donated books from all over the county. We arrived at about 1:30 which was a bit late since it started at 10:00. I would recommend getting there first thing in the morning. People were walking out with large boxes filled with books. Some had wheeled carts or bags to help carry books. Amazing prices!

Adult hardback books: $1.00
Children hardback books: $.50
Paperbacks: $.25
DVD's $1.00
VHS tapes $.25

Less than what you would pay for at a yard sale, except there were thousands to choose from. I would definitely set a purchase limit because you could go crazy! We only picked up a few books and paid $7.50. Check with your local library to see when their next library book sale is, and get it on your calendar. Love the library!

  1. We went to our library in Hyrum a few weeks ago and they had a book sale. I got 5 books for my toddler for $1, 5 paperbacks for me for $1, and a hardback for $1 - not bad...11 books for $3!!!
