I love books. In fact, my home resembles a used book store. Despite owning three large bookcases, there's still quite an overflow of books scattered on most flat surfaces throughout the house.
I'm happy to say this habit was passed to both my kids as well, so some of that overflow belongs to them.
I found some kindred souls last week during a visit to the Glen Avon Regional Library in Glen Avon at the Friends of the Library Two-for-One Tuesday Book Sale.
The sale takes place on the second Tuesday of every month - so mark your calendars for April 12 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Husband and wife team Larry and Julia Robinson have been organizing the bookstore (also open daily from within the library) since it began with the opening of the new library building 15 years ago. Other volunteers also sort, clean, display and run the register for the store.
"We pay for most of the programming here at the library," Larry Robinson said.
The library has a variety of children's programs (including a first run movie night), as well as poetry readings, UCR Gluck Fellows workshops and more.
The books for sale come from every genre - mysteries, biographies, romance, children's books and more - in both soft and hardcover. There is also a small collection of vintage books available for purchase.
"We get lovely donations," Robinson said.
