As many of you know, the Friends of the Tompkins Public Library book sale in Ithaca on Esty St. is going strong this weekend and next. This now famous sale even has its own Wikipedia entry.
I encourage you to check out the remaining dates. A number of students have spoken to me about the finds they have picked up at the sale this month. As the sale progresses, the books are marked down more and more so that by the end you can buy bags of books for a few dollars. Last week one of our current student teachers picked up a dozen titles for her classroom (surprisingly contemporary titles) for a pittance.
I encourage you to go! If you’ve never been, it’s also a happening. Lots of pics of the sale appear on flickr. KES
