Booktique Sales and Specials of the Week

Every week, the Booktique offers Sales and Specials. Some of these tie into holiday themes or seasons, and some highlight different categories of books. Check back each week to see what the specials and sales are for the upcoming week. Then come into Booktique and see all the books that are available at Special and Sale rates. You might find a treasure you hadn't thought to look for before! And, you can't beat our prices, especially when we have half-price sales!

Current Specials at Booktique

This week ALL FICTION is on sale half-price.
This includes the Fiction Wall, all hardcover and paperback general fiction, romance, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, young adult, and children's. It does NOT include the Current Fiction table. 

We have loads of "Grab Bags" of DVDs on our outside cart. Just a fun way to deal with a large surplus of DVDs, mostly culled from the library - great for a binge-session on a hot summer day!

Are you one of the generous people who donates books to the Booktique?
We wouldn't exist without you! However, we regularly experience two problems with donations, and you can help. First, please bring donations only when the store is open! That's Tuesday - Saturday 10 - 4, and until 7 on Wednesdays. Dumping bags or boxes outside our door creates a tripping and fire hazard, and is unfortunately an invitation for theft. Don't do it! Our other issue is with books that smell of mildew or tobacco smoke. Several of our volunteers (and customers, too!) deal with allergies, and even a small amount of mustiness/mildew can trigger an asthma attack. Yes, we love old books, but not if they have spent much time stored in a damp basement or garage, or in the house of a heavy smoker. If you bring us books we cannot sell because of odor or mildew issues, please forgive us if we ask you to take them back. We simply cannot have them in the store. Thank you for understanding!

We appreciate our amazing donors and customers! Thank you for your support of the Booktique, the Friends of the Library, and the wonderful Lake Oswego Library! If you haven't already signed up for Summer Reading at the Library, there is still time! Open to all: kids, teens and adults, too!
