The Friends of the El Sobrante Library (FESL) is inviting the community to a book sale at the Library.

The book sale will take place Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Library at 4191 Appian Way in El Sobrante. Proceeds from the sale will benefit Library programs.

Members can peruse books for sale from 10 a.m. till noon, while the general public is invited in from noon to 2 p.m. 

With Valentine’s Day approaching, FESL is offering special pricing on romance hardcover and paperback books at 50 cents apiece. That alone could bring in buyers — earlier this month, Contra Costa County Library announced that the most popular genre borrowed among its vast catalog last year was romance.

This Saturday’s book sale also offers the option of purchasing four small paperbacks for $1.
