Really Little, Really Big




The very small dictionary shown here is not only cute, it's useful! Do you know a student struggling with French? Or one whose backpack is already full? Maybe the size of this tiny volume will bring a smile to their face! This is just one sample of the ephemera we'll have at the Used Book Sale, September 26-28, at Reston Regional Library. For first choices, renew your membership and come on Friends Night, September 25 from 6-8:30 (or purchase a new membership that evening).

Ephemera (noun): items designed to last only for a short time, such as programs or posters

From small to large. They don't call this an Elephant Folio for nothing! From the Audubon Society, Audubon’s Birds of America by Roger Tory Peterson & Virginia Marie Peterson is published by Artabras. It is truly enormous -- the ultimate coffee table book for bird lovers. You could add legs and MAKE it into the coffee table! It is copyright 1981, published 1985. The trade-off for it being so big and heavy is that the paintings inside are beautiful and visible. The reader can discern every feather. It is for sale at $50.

Remember, if you're interested in anything you see here, e-mail us at RestonFriendspr@gmail.com. If your membership is current, we'll tag the item 'sold' with your name on it. If not, you'll need to renew, purchase a membership, or wait until 26 September and see if it is still available.

See you at the sale!
