Book Sale, Writer's Showcase, and Overdue Amnesty Days at Sims Library

Sims Library is celebrating National Library Week, April 9 to 14, with three of our most popular events of the year: the annual Book Sale, “Readings at Sims,” and Overdue Book Amnesty Days.

  • Book Sale is Tuesday and Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. No matter what you’re into, there’s something you’ve been wanting to read. Thousands of books for sale include popular fiction, sci-fi, biography, literature, poetry, cookbooks, self-help, art and photography, education, history, political science, sociology, and religion. Hard cover books are $2. Paperbacks are $1-2. DVDs are $2. CDs are $1.
  • Readings at Sims Library is Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., on the 3rd floor of Sims Library. Each year, Readings at Sims serves as a lively showcase for many of the talented writers in our community who will read from their original works. This entertaining program is led by librarian and local author Dayne Sherman. Light refreshments will be served.
  • Overdue Book AmnestyDays are Sunday through Thursday. What does that mean? It means you can bring back your overdue books without having to pay your fines! Be aware that amnesty does not apply to all library fines and fees. It applies only to books from the circulating stacks and does not include any of the following: outstanding fines (such as unpaid overdue fines from books returned in the past), lost book replacement fees, damaged books, Reserve books, or equipment (laptops, audio recorders, etc.)
