Dig for literary gold at the Park Slope Book Sale

by -

The days of used books a-plenty in the Slope are long gone, but this weekend’s your chance to wade through low-priced dusty covers and lovingly-dog-eared pages once again. The 17th annual Park Slope Book Sale is on this Saturday and Sunday at the Park Slope United Methodist Church (493 8th St. at Sixth Ave). The sale will be huge—it really does look like a mini-Strand moves into the church’s basement for a weekend—with all books going for $0.50 to $2. There’ll also be DVDs, CDs, records, cassette tapes, audio books, games and puzzles for $4 or less. All proceeds go to the church, which, last year, made $15,000 from the sale—that’s how many books are at this thing. Hours are 8:30 to 4:30 Saturday and 12:30 to 4:30 Sunday. Donations are still being accepted until 9 p.m. tonight. More info here.
