It is that time again!

A record number of gently read books await shoppers for the final FOCAL book sale of 2009. The sale, which will begin Friday, November 6 and continue through Sunday, November 8, offers shoppers $.50 paperback books and $1 hardback books in the Main Library basement.

Volunteer coordinator Linda Halbrook also noted that more than 300 boxes of prepackaged books are available for $1 each. "These dollar boxes are sorted by genre and each contains 25 books," she said. FOCAL members can shop the Main Library basement from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday; the sale opens to the public at 10 a.m. Sale hours on Sunday are 1 to 4 p.m. for everyone.

FOCAL members will get special deals on great books as well as a sneak peek at the expansion of River Market Books & Gifts during a book sale preview party Thursday, Nov. 5 from 5-7 p.m. Books will be housed on the second floor of the Cox Creative Center as well as the first floor and the basement level, transforming River Market Books & Gifts into Little Rock's only three-story bookstore.
