The sale is set for noon to 4 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room of the Menlo Park Library at 800 Alma St.
The Friends' book sales have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for library materials, programs, and the Project Read adult literacy program through the years, with the biggest fundraiser being the group's massive annual book fair in the fall.
Tim Goode of the Friends said recently held four-hour sales have been very successful. "It's a taste of the annual Book Fair in miniature form — less crowded, more easily accessible, with some of the best gently used books," he said in an e-mail.
The sale will include titles in a range of categories, such as children's, young readers, history, biography, fiction, literature, and poetry, he said.
