I’ve gotta hand it to them – the Friends of St. Thomas Public Library are doing a rather outstanding job with the Library Friends’ Shop in the Elgin Mall. They’ve gone from a once-a-month book sale, rather like a classy garage sale, to a full-blown retail store. And it’s all 100% volunteer run! Kudos, Friends! You’re fantastic!
Not only are they running a nice little used book shop, they’re running a nice little used book shop with sweet monthly deals. This month, the Book Shop’s in Love (I hear it isn’t contagious,) and for the month of February 2012, all Romance books are on sale! Huzzah! So whether you have a valentine this month or not, you can either stock up on some Romance books and pretend, or else super-saturate yourself in warm, sometimes slightly scandalous, love stories. (*Insert an eyebrow waggle here*)
Romance Hardcovers: 75¢ (reg. price – $2.00)
Romance Softcovers & Paperbacks: 50¢ (reg. price – $1.50)
Harlequin Romances: 15 for $1.00 (Yowzah!)
So stop by the Library Friends’ Shop in the Elgin Mall and load up on some Romance novels, because everyone needs a scintillating read once in a while!
Shop Hours: Monday to Saturday – 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
417 Wellington Street, St. Thomas, located between Charm Jewellers and Flair.
