With the holidays around the corner, it is time to start get your gift list together. One of my favorite places to shop is right here at the library. This weekend is the FOAL (Friends of the Atascocita Library) book sale and it's a great opportunity to pick up fabulous books for incredibly low prices. In addition to books, you can also find magazines, DVDs, CDs, and VHS tapes. If you are a member of FOAL, or want to become one, you can shop the preview on Friday, October 23rd from 5pm to 7pm; otherwise, you can catch the sale on Saturday, October 24th from 10AM to 4PM.
Need something to wrap up all those presents? Last year, I wrapped all my presents in reusable shopping bags. This year, I plan on doing that again but with the official FOAL Reading Rocks recycled, reusable bags. They will be available at the book sale but if you miss out, you can always purchase them at the circulation desk. It's a great way to save the planet and support the library.
