The book sale will feature a collection of more than 5,000 used books, CDs, DVDs, and other educational materials. We thank all who have donated books, time and effort, and encourage readers and friends to visit us this Saturday.  

We expect thousands of people to attend the Gran Venta de Libros, and to take advantage of one of the best selections of used books in Costa Rica. Most books will sell for {1,000-2,000 ($2-4), and admission is free. This will be a community event and will also include various activities, food and beverages from the museum’s 1930 Café.  Proceeds from the sale will be distributed to two beneficiaries: El Museo Regional and the Hogar para Ancianos.  We have the books, now all we need is you.
