How many times have you ever said this, "I need more books for my classroom library"? Well, I found this nice little secret a few years back while teaching kindergarten. I am going to share it with all of you so that you can get books the inexpensive way for your classroom library. Have you ever heard of "Book Sale Finder"?
Click on the image to take you to their website
When you get to the website you will see the image below along with many other images on their website. Just click on the state you live in and
you will see the next image that tells you where all of the book sales that your local library has coming up and the dates and times to visit.
As you can see I have one to go to in Alpharetta, GA on April 5th. At my local library I go and get a box or two of books for about $10.00 to $15.00 per box. (they usually run from .50 to $1.00 each) I also find VHS movies really cheap since nobody has a VHS player anymore except me in my classroom! If you get there early on the first day they open, or go when they have a "library card holder" preview, you can make out like a bandit in the book territory. I then can use them to send home with my kids and not worry about them getting lost because they can be replaced at the next book sale.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, they have a Facebook page so click on the link below and follow them to get notifications.
Okay, I wanted to keep it short and sweet so you can hop to the next "Bright Idea" in our blog hop! Here's to happy reading and book finding!
Now please head to the next blog in the blog hop and go over to visit Gina at "Third Grade Tidbits"…
Thanks for visiting and have fun!
