Our mission: Enhance the community through support for the Sun City libraries
July 2022 Edition of the Newsflash
Don’t wait for December to celebrate Christmas! A visit to Books Around the Corner can get you in the spirit with our Christmas in July Sale where you can hunt for that perfect holiday gift or your next favorite read:
Get half off on anything and everything related to Christmas: hard and softback books, movie DVD’s, music CD’s, audiobooks, and puzzles!
Also, join us as we commemorate America’s Birthday on July 4th and celebrate our freedoms by offering:
All books about America’s history at half price!
If you love reading about our country and its independence come and browse through our impressive collection of history books, books on politics, and books about Presidents! We have several classics about WWI, the Second World War, the Civil War, the Revolution, and more!
So welcome July with a visit to our bookshop where bargain-finds await you! Every purchase supports your local libraries and keeps our community thriving.
The bookstore will be closed Monday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.
“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy.” Oscar Wilde
“So often, a visit to a bookshop has cheered me and reminded me that there are good things in the world.” Vincent van Gogh
COVID concerns continue in our community despite decreasing numbers of deaths and hospitalizations. Whereas we respect Maricopa County’s decision to drop the mask mandate, because of the bookstore’s small space, we strongly encourage volunteers and members of the public to wear a mask when in the bookstore.
If you know a friend who would like to receive our monthly NewsFlash tell them to sign up by emailing ireneOrRena@cox.net
