Book_Sale03-4x3Time to buy more bookshelves.

The Fray Angélico Chávez History Library’s occasional book sale is back. Come to the Meem Community Room on the New Mexico History Museum’s Washington Avenue side between 9 am and 4 pm on Saturday, Sept. 21, to score bargains on books about Western Americana, political science, the nuclear age, a bit of fiction and a few coffee-table books.

The Photo Archives at the Palace of the Governors will also sell reprints from its collections.

Paperbacks will go for as low as 50 cents, hardbacks for $1-$2, with slightly higher prices for specialty books. Prints will sell for between $2 and $20. After 3 pm, anything that’s left will be sold at half price. Cash or checks only, please.

The books include duplicates of ones already in the library’s holdings, as well as volumes donated specifically for the sale. Proceeds will benefit the History Library and Photo Archives.
