The Annual Friends of the Pittsburg Public Library Book Sale will be held on Saturday, September 3 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Rain cancels the sale.

This year’s Book Sale includes books in several categories including mystery, fiction, romance, science fiction, horror, military, humor, pets and animals, hobby, how-to, travel, cookbooks, biographies, literature, vintage, and many more.

Proceeds from the book sale benefit the Friends of the Pittsburg Public Library, an organization that purchases library materials, and sponsors programs and special events throughout the year, including the Summer Reading Programs.

The Book Sale will be held outside in the Library’s courtyard and Bookmobile area. Library access will not be available during the sale.

The Pittsburg Public Library is closed for regular business from Saturday, September 3 through Monday, September 5. Shop for a great cause!
