    Spring 2008 sale on the way

    The Friends of the Reston Library Spring book sale is coming fast. You should mark the calendar now to remember it - April 24-27th, 2008, of course at the Reston Regional Library. It is always somewhat funny to watch people accidentally stumble upon it in their normal trip to the library, so here is your chance to get positive karma points - tell your neighbors, friends, book club, etc.

    To raise awareness of the sale and our group in general, we are partnering with the Reston Town Center Multiplex Cinema to show the following ad before movies in the weeks leading up to the sale:

    All the pictures included were taken at past sales. If you're one of the people featured, stop by to autograph your picture.

    Now - pay attention! Movie ticket stubs from Reston Town Center Multiplex Cinema are worth $1 each at the checkout for every $5 of books purchased for films seen between Feb 29 and April 27, 2008! Get cashier voucher at the door. Movie ticket stubs = $$ off!

    If you don't want to watch the video, all the information is right here as well:

    We have a lot of books in the room, but unfortunately, so many that we can't fit them all in at once. Volunteers continuously re-stock throughout the sale.
