Friends Of The Folsom Library Book Sale — Prices Lower Than Ever!

The bargains readers enjoy at the Friends of the Folsom Library used-book sales will get even better. At its next biannual sale, March 21-23 at the Folsom Library, the Friends will lower some of its already rock-bottom prices even more: Hardback and trade fiction (large softcover) books will be just $1.

All other items will remain at their standard low prices: hardback nonfiction $2; nonfiction trade books $1.50, small paperbacks 75 cents each or three for $2; children’s books 50 cents. Some exceptional items may be specially marked.

The sale begins with a preview night Friday, March 21, from 5 to 8 p.m. Admission is $5 for the opportunity to choose from the best selection (Friends members get in free). Saturday and Sunday, March 22 and 23, will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with free admission for all on both days. Sunday is the Friends’ popular "bag day" – grocery-size bags filled with books are just $5 each.

All the books available at the sale are donations in good condition. The Friends is a nonprofit corporation whose sole mission is to support the Folsom Public Library. In the past two decades, the Friends has given more than a quarter-million dollars for library materials and activities. Last year, the group provided the funds to replace all the public computers, which are free for patrons’ use.

Most of the Friends’ funds are raised through its book sales and its bookstore inside the library. Every penny donated to the Friends benefits the Folsom Library.

Justin Roberts And The Not Ready For Naptime Players Coming To Hariis Cetner March 16

Even if you're not familiar with Justin Roberts' music, there's a good chance your kids are. The Chicago-based musician has a knack for writing songs that appeal to the young and the young at heart.

Find out first-hand why he’s often known as the “hardest working man in children’s show business” when Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players come to Harris Center for the Arts.

He has been compared to Buddy Holly, Nick Lowe, Weezer and even Paul McCartney. Millions have seen him on Sprout TV, The Today Show and Nick Jr., and one of his songs was featured on a World Series broadcast.

A former Montessori preschool teacher, Justin clearly remembers what it was like to be a kid – and his power pop sound will get everyone in the family on their feet, dancing and singing along. Justin will perform his high-energy hits like “Trick or Treat,” “Willy Was a Whale” and “Pop Fly,” plus songs from his newly released, NAPPA Gold Award-winning release, Recess. The Los Angeles Times comments that Roberts sings "Comic and soulful songs with creative, unique twists and turns that parents will enjoy as much as the children."

Justin Roberts is a Chicago-based artist who logs thousands of miles on the road each year while performing hundreds of concerts around North America. With numerous national awards (including seven Parents’ Choice Gold awards and six NAPPA Gold awards), Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players consistently dish out intelligent and whimsically engaging music. Roberts also recently authored a new picture book for children, to be published by Putnam in 2014.
Justin's CDs win multiple national awards and frequent critical acclaim. His 2010 release Jungle Gym was nominated for a Grammy Award and gained acclaim from Time magazine, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, National Public Radio and more. He recently won a second Grammy nomination for his new recording Recess in the “Best Album for Children” category.

JUSTIN ROBERTS and the NOT READY FOR NAPTIME PLAYERS perform on Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 6 p.m. Tickets are priced at $15 General Admission. Tickets are available online at or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.
