Book Store

The Barbara Bush Library Friends operate a Used Book Store just inside the library. It is open during the day seven days a week. During November, they are selling their large collection of science fiction books at half-off the already low bargain prices. This means that hardback science fiction is $1.50; large paperbacks are $1.00; and regular paperbacks are only $.50. How can you beat that!!
