Would you like a little sci-fi with your cherries?

Last year the Central Library Friends participated in the Wednesday Farmers’ Market in Cesar Chavez Park from June through October and discovered how much fun it was to sit under a cool (sort of) canopy, talk to the many downtown workers, and sell new and slightly used books to them. This year we were able to meet the deadline for opening day in May, and our first day back in the Park yielded some of the following comments and questions:

“We’re so happy to see you back at the Farmers’ Market.” (Yea!)
“Last year I bought up all of your sci-fi. Can you bring some next week?” (Yes)
“Do you accept donations?” (Yes)
“Do you sell National Geographic magazines?” (Yes, inside the Library on the first floor in the Friends' sale area)
“Will you have audio books next time? Last year another woman and I competed all season long to buy them before the other.” (We'll see what we can do!)

So please look for us every Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. We'll be the ones offering books instead of cherries and pistachios. Thank you, Sacramento, for your support this year--we love being an integral part of our downtown community.
