The College Women’s Club of Montclair is hosting its renowned semi-annual Used Book & Music Sale starting this weekend. The club has been holding the event every year since 1934, making it the oldest consecutively running book sale in the country.
“We have 100,000-120,000 books available,” said Holly Mann, one of the organizers and a member since 1976. “Also, we are the only sale in the area that features books in upright bookcases like in a library. That’s because we can keep important things from one sale to the next.”
The selection is jaw-dropping, and also includes magazines, LPs, CDs, DVDs, audio & video tapes, sheet music, software and ephemera. “We have a huge ephemera selection, including things like old railroad tickets, wedding invitations and old newspapers,” said Mann. “People can’t believe it when they see everything we have.”
Everything is sold at bargain prices, and all the proceeds go to college scholarship awards for local girls.
The sale kicks off on Saturday, April 14 at 9:30 and closes out on Sunday, April 22. It is located at Booksale Headquarters, 26 Park St. For more details, click here.
