Tonight's the Night!

At 6pm this evening, the best Used Book Sale in Northern Virginia will open its doors to very special supporters. Members of Friends of Reston Regional Library will be able to shop from 6-8:30 p.m. at 11025 Bowman Towne Drive to fulfill wish lists -- personal and for others!

We've been tweaking our flow of information and books since April with an eye toward giving you the best selection and service at the sale. But please be patient -- you know that we all have to stand in line at some point in our lives. It may be while waiting to go into the booksale, or it may be while you're waiting to pay for your books!

We will have a 3rd cashier set up during the sale when lines are too long. All of our cashiers are equipped to take cash or checks. NO CREDIT CARDS!

You may bring a scanner with you but we cannot allow any kind of cart or stroller -- that's a fire marshal restriction. You may not HOARD books! You may not harass or interfere with another patron. We like to keep our book sale a friendly event for our book-loving community. Your adult behavior will help ensure that is the case.

We love children and childrens books, however, small children can be a danger to themselves and others if they are not closely supervised, so please consider whether bringing your small children will be too much of a distraction for you while you're trying to shop. One of our continuing concerns is the number of children and adults in the childrens section who take boxes of books out into the middle of the pathway, endangering themselves and some of our elderly and disabled patrons. Please be a responsible parent!

Personal shopping? Not quite, but IF YOU ARE A MEMBER, and you're looking for a particular title or author, our super-sharp stockers might be able to narrow down your field of search.

We appreciate your business and your support. Please let us know if there are ideas we can try for next sale that will enhance your shopping experience! See you at 6!
