Book lovers are invited to shop for bargains beginning Wednesday at the New Alexandria Public Library.

The library will hold its fifth annual used book sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Aug. 23 and 10 a.m. to 2p.m. Aug. 24 in Keystone Plaza, at the intersection of routes 22 and 981.

Books, DVDs and movies will be for sale, with books priced at $1 for hardbacks, 50 cents for paperbacks and 25 cents for children’s titles.

On Aug. 24, a bag of items will cost $2.

The library, which is preparing to mark its 100th anniversary, has about 10,000 items in its collection, with access to additional titles through the Westmoreland Library Network. Computers provide internet access.

The library also is home to the Derry Area Historical Society’s Family and Community History Research Center. Resources available to assist with research include family trees, community histories, cemetery records, local tax and census records and land patent maps for the Derry area — including New Alexandria and Derry borough and township.

Regular hours at the library are noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

For more information about the library, visit or call 724-668-7747.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
