    CINCINNATI — The annual summer used book sale held by the Anderson Township Library Association (ATLA) has become a community favorite for browsing for books, puzzles, games, DVDs and more. But this summer, in addition to offering tables full of music CDs, sheet music is available for purchase as well.
     
    Thanks to a generous donation, this year’s sale features a collection of vintage sheet music. Examples include an Elton John anthology, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, The Way We Were by Barbra Streisand, and other titles from the Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra eras. Another standout this year is a large collection of books on car remodeling, boat building and welding.
     
    Dates and times for the June Used Book Sale at Nagel Middle School (1500 Nagel Road):
    • Friday, June 21, 10 a.m.–8 p.m.
    • Saturday, June 22, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
    • Sunday, June 23, noon to 3 p.m.
     
    As usual, the sale includes rare books, cookbooks, used media, gardening books, children’s and YA books, fiction, and more. Be sure to check out the Blue Light Special tables for deals on books as well as Books on CD. Plus, four copies of “Seckatary Hawkins” are up for grabs along with other celebrity books, including “Shirley Temple’s Storybook,” and “Willie Was Different: The Tale of an Ugly Thrushling” by Molly and Norman Rockwell.
     
    The ATLA is a volunteer group that supports the facilities, services, and resources of the Anderson and Mt. Washington branch libraries. The major efforts of ATLA are two annual book sales. Funds raised by these sales are used to support adult and children’s programs, purchase books, audiovisual material, and special equipment. Thanks to the support of the Anderson and Mt. Washington community, ATLA raised more than $9,000 at its November Used Book Sale last year.
     
    The ATLA book sale accepts checks and cash; no credit cards. Book sale donations may be dropped off at either the Anderson or Mt. Washington branches. For additional information about ATLA or its book sales, call 513-369-6030.
