Emmet O’Neal Library Annual Book Sale

Readers, it’s time for one of the most enjoyable events of the year, the Annual Book Sale at the Emmet O’Neal Library in Mountain Brook on February 24 – 26, 2012. The friends of other local libraries have book sales or shops, but it’s fair to say that Emmet’s friends have elevated the book sale to a sort of festival.

It’s all about the books, of course, and raising money for a fine library. But insiders know that this library boasts a fair number of patrons who are associated with the Birmingham publishing scene, and you are bound to find some especially choice books on cooking, gardening, and decorating.

Here are highlights:

  • Thursday, February 23rd 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Book Sale Preview Party. $25 donation. Wine and cheese.
  • Friday, February 24th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – Book Sale. Cookbook signings from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Saturday, February 25th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – Book Sale. Sesame Street characters from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • 10% off for seniors Friday and Saturday
