The Museum of Flight Library Book Sale  Saturday Oct. 13

Thousands of books and magazines at bargain prices

SEATTLE, Oct. 1, 2012--The annual Museum of Flight Library book sale will be on Saturday Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Museum's library is the largest of its kind in the western United States, so its inventory of duplicates and other extras for sale is huge. The stacks will be full with thousands of books, magazines and other printed materials covering every topic of aviation and space, plus vintage popular culture magazines including Life, Look and The Saturday Evening Post. Prices will be modest, and the proceeds directly benefit The Museum of Flight Collections. The sale will be located in the Museum's Library and Archive building next to the Museum Airpark.
