Book sale & breakfast this weekend!

This Saturday 10 to 5,  and Sunday 12:30 to 5 after service, BTC will be selling more than a thousand awesome books, many brand new!  Plus DVDs, CDs, and some t-shirts, arts, and crafts! Hardcovers cost $3, trade paper $1, mass paper $.50, DVDs $2, CDs $1, magazines $.25, rest as marked. SUNDAY CLOSEOUT SALE starts 3 pm – all books, DVDs, and CDs will be $5 PER DOZEN.  Every penny goes directly to support the temple, so you can throw in a few extra bucks if you think you got a great deal! Cash preferred, credit cards might be accepted if our machine isn’t acting up (it might be, it’s crabby).

On Sunday at 8 to 11 am, join the fundraising breakfast for only $10, $7.50 for kids under 12.  There will be teriyaki wieners, rice, eggs, tea, coffee, juice, and a vegetarian option. You can even browse and buy books during the breakfast.
