(Manzanita) – Two years of pandemic forced the hiatus of one of the largest used book sales in Oregon, but book fanciers will be welcomed back to Manzanita on May 27-28, 2022 – Memorial Day weekend – to browse thousands of gently used fiction, non-fiction, children’s and other books.
The huge sale, the largest fundraising event for the North Tillamook Library Friends, the non-profit that owns the library building and grounds in Manzanita, will take place at three venues on Laneda Avenue: the Pine Grove Community House, the Hoffman Center for the Arts and Calvary Bible Church. The three locations are within easy walking distance of each other along the main street in Manzanita.
Dedicated volunteers have been sorting and cataloguing the vast number of donated books that have accumulated since 2020 for what will be the largest sale ever in Manzanita. Fiction and children’s books will be featured at the Pine Grove. The Fellowship Hall of the church and the Hoffman Center will be the venue for non-fiction titles.
Members of the Library Friends are able to participate in a two-hour “pre-sale” on May 27 from 5:00-7:00 pm. You can renew memberships or become a member prior to the sale by visiting the Friends’ website (https://www.northtillamooklibrary.org/become-a-member), by completing a membership form at the library or by joining at the door during the sale.
All members of the public can visit all venues from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm on May 28.
