More than 15,000 people are expected to peruse — and purchase — over 150,000 books and other forms of media during the 70th annual Friends of the Library of Hawaii Book Sale starting Saturday at McKinley High School, 1039 S. King St.
This year, nearly 500 volunteers will help sell books, games, puzzles, a model plane collection, comics and even fine art. FLH members and customers of event sponsor Hawaii State Federal Credit Union will have access to a preview sale from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday before the sale opens to the general public from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday.
The sale continues 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 16, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 17 through July 20, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. July 21. An “overstock tent” will be open from July 17 through 21 with select books discounted 25 percent. Everything left for sale will be marked down 50 percent from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. July 22, with prices on all remaining items dropping to just 50 cents from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 23.
