Mark your calendars now – for two days only, the Leatherby Libraries rotunda is about to be transformed from a study space into a marketplace of books! On April 7-8, 2016, the Leatherby Libraries will hold its 10th Annual Book Sale on the  first floor.

The book sale includes more than just the academic works in the library collection. We do have plenty of books on academic subjects like history, politics, and business, but there are also plenty of less serious books for sale. In addition to the usual wide range of popular fiction, we also have some travel books, gardening books, and cookbooks available. You could pick up a book to help you plan your dream European vacation or design your own wine cellar. There are even some CDs, DVDs, and LPs available for sale. And just like always, each book will cost you only $1!

The first day of the sale is exclusive to Chapman students, staff, and faculty–so Panthers can get first pick of the best books we have to offer. This Campus-Only sale will be held on Thursday, April 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sale continues on Friday, April 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a Campus & Community sale that is open to the public.

All proceeds from the sale support the library’s collections. Each dollar you spend at the book sale helps us expand our collections to make sure we have the most relevant resources for Chapman University students to use.
