“Bookends” Opening at 5pm Today

These are books.

If you’re headed for the beach this summer, you might want to keep this equation in mind:

Sand + Electronics = Not A Good Idea

The solution for your vacay reading needs is something called a “book” and you can start stocking up now: Bookends, the used bookstore at Albany Public Library’s main branch, is having its grand opening at 5pm today.

They have more than 2000 books ready for perursal, with prices ranging from $1 for paperbacks to $5 for hardcovers. The current hours are Tuesday-Thursdays, 5-7pm, although they plan to expand those in the future. Proceeds from the sales will go to support projects and activities not covered by the library’s operating budget.

And because we’re greedy little readers, we’re going to ask…what’s your favorite used bookstore?
