The Tyler Public Library will host its Fall Book Sale in the lobby and first-floor Book Nook from Oct. 12 through Oct. 16.

Items for sale include donations, which do not meet the Library’s current needs as well as gently-used resources that have been withdrawn from circulation. Library staff and volunteers have been sorting and preparing sale items for months. 

“All proceeds from our sales go toward the purchase of new or replacement items for the Library’s collection,” said Vernau. “We expect to have thousands of items on hand, nearly all of them new to this sale.”

Wednesday through Saturday, adult hardback books are priced at $1 while all paperbacks, children’s books, audio books and videotapes will be 50¢. DVD’s, CD’s and vinyl records will be available for $1. There may be other miscellaneous items as well. 

Sunday is the Library’s special pricing event.  Cardboard boxes will be provided and can be filled with books for $7 per box.  Paper grocery bags can be filled for $4 per bag.

The Tyler Public Library is located at 201 S. College Ave. in Downtown Tyler.  More information about the sale can be found on the Library website at or by calling 903-593-7323.

The hours that sale area will be open at the library during the fall sale include:

• Oct. 12-13 from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.,

• Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.,

• Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

• Oct. 16 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. 

As stock will be replenished over the sale days, new items may be found daily.  Please note that there are no previews of sale items or early sales.
