More than a thousand gently used books offered to public at bargain prices.
The Virginia War Memorial will hold its first ever Military History Book Sale, Saturday, January 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Paul and Phyllis Galanti Education Center at 621 South Belvidere Street in Richmond.
Over a thousand slightly used hardback and paperback books will be offered to the public at prices starting at fifty cents each. Many of the books came from the Memorial’s extensive library and focus on military history, tactics, and biographies. There will also be an array of other books covering many other subjects, and even fiction donated by friends of the Virginia War Memorial.
All proceeds from the book sale will benefit the non-profit Virginia War Memorial Foundation and used to fund the Memorial’s patriotic and educational programs and exhibits, student and teacher seminars and documentary films. Preferred method of purchase is cash or check but major credit cards will also be accepted.
“We will have Freedom Hall filled to the brim with many hard-to-find and out-of-print books for history lovers and anyone who enjoys reading,” said Kyndall Drumheller, who is coordinating the sale.
Drumheller noted that the Memorial’s popular Artifacts Roadshow will also be taking place in the Galanti Center on January 28. Admission and parking for both events is free.
