SOUTHFIELD, Mich.– The Lawrence Technological University Library’s annual used book sale will be held  Monday through Saturday, March 14-19, at 21000 West Ten Mile Road, Southfield.  Hours of the sale will be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

There are approximately 2,500 items and this year there is a strong selection in fiction as well as the standard areas of business, science, technology, social studies, art, literature, and computers. Most of the books are in excellent condition and include items donated to the library that are duplicates or do not fit the library’s collection plan. 

Because the library staff wants to put these books into people’s hands, it will continue the great “can’t say no” prices of past years: $1 for hardcovers and 50 cents for paperbacks except for specially priced sets.
