The Friends of the Library of Hawai'i says its 66th Annual Booksale will be held from June 22 though June 30 at the McKinley High School Cafeteria.

The new title sponsor for the event is the Hawai'i State Federal Credit Union.

At Hawaii's largest used book sale, you can choose from over 150,000 books in every category imaginable!

Join the over 20,000 readers of all ages and backgrounds who converge on the McKinley High School cafeteria for the annual event  -- 10 days of bargains and a selection to rival any bookstore.

Members can preview and buy books before the general public.  There will be an FLH members' preview night on Thursday, June 20, and an HSFCU members'
preview night on Friday, June 21.  FLH members may attend both preview nights.

In addition to books, the book sale will feature a selection of CDs, DVDs, comics, manga, reference books, National Geographics, and much more.

New this year is a large, eclectic selection of donated art.  A catalog of rare and collectible books will also be on display.

The 2013 Booksale will feature, for the first time, a special $2/book popup sale Monday through Friday featuring a different category each day, such as mysteries on June 24, and military history on June 25, in a "pop-up tent" in front of the cafeteria.

Over 400 volunteers staff the sale in addition to the over 100 year-round volunteers who tirelessly work to support the Hawai'i State Public Library System through statewide programming such as the Summer and Fall Reading Programs, the purchase of books and other materials to enhance library collections, and grants to advance technology and library services throughout the system.
