Hillsboro Book Sale (and more) May 2-11

The Friends of the Hillsboro Public Library always throw a good book sale. But do you think of the Friends when you think of fine mid-century furniture? Maybe you should.

The semi-annual sale takes place during library hours, May 2nd - May 11th, at the Hillsboro Public Library's meeting room. The library is located at 2850 NE Brookwood Pkwy. Open hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.- 8 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday 12 - 6 p.m.

As you might expect, the book sale features a healthy selection of fiction, non-fiction, kids, and foreign language books. They even have comic books, CDs, cassettes, vinyl LPs, videos and DVDs, and software.

This year, the Friends will also have 25 mid-century Herman Miller by Eames Swivel Bucket chairs for sale. The library surplused the chairs from the staff lounge. The prices are right: $50-$125, depending upon condition. Come early for best selection.
