Scout out used book sales to save big bucks and recycle in a big way. It’s markdown madness at the Friends of the Mill Creek Library sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Mill Creek Library.

Used books, DVDs, CDs, books on tape and even some VHS tapes are priced from 25 cents to $1, and after 2 p.m. it’s clearance time: all items are half price. Bring your own book bag and stock up.

The books are donated by community members and the Sno-Isle Library system, and the sale is organized with help from Boy Scout Troop 221, United Way Teen Volunteers, the city of Mill Creek, the Mill Creek Senior Center and Clock Tower Storage. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Mill Creek Library.

You can also greet two local authors: At 11 a.m. meet Janet Robertson, of Mill Creek, author of “All of Our Yesterdays: A Century of Family Life in an American Small Town,” based on papers and personal documents found in the Connecticut house where the author lived.

At 11:30 a.m. Amy Modica Myers joins the event. The Everett author’s “The Difference Between a Boy and a Man” encourages people to throw out stereotypes and examine what traits are truly important, such as trust and truth. Signed copies of the book were donated for the sale.

The Mill Creek Library is at 15429 Bothell-Everett Highway. Call 425-337-4822 or go to http://tinyurl.com/BookFriends for more information.
