10/14/2010 - Library Book Sale

OU Libraries will sponsor a sidewalk book sale from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 14, on the south side of the Neustadt Wing of Bizzell Memorial Library. The sale will be open only to members of the OU Community from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. From 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm the sale will be open to the public.

Thousands of books – best sellers, classics, science, social science, and foreign language books – will be offered for sale at bargain prices.  Books in the sale have been received as gifts to the University Libraries and are in the sale because the library already has copies or the materials are not appropriate for the collection.

Hardback books will be $2.00; paperbacks will be $1.00, and magazines will be 50 cents.  Further discounts will be taken late on Friday afternoon for remaining items.  Money raised from the book sale will be used to purchase additional materials for the library collections. Payment for books can be made in cash or by check.

For more information about the book sale, contact Starla Doescher, Head of Acquisitions, at (405) 325-2141 or email
