A perfect gift for your loved ones – a book spine in the library (now reduced to $99)
If you're looking for a great year-end gift idea for your kids' teachers or organization leaders, check out our "book spines." These beautiful mini-plaques, designed to look like spines of books, are engraved or hand-lettered with a name or message of your choice and mounted permanently on a library wall.
Best news: For our 20th anniversary, we have reduced the spine prices to $99.
Book spines come in two styles: wood and ceramic. You can see both in the adult and children's wings of the Folsom Library. For a pdf order form and more information, click here. Or go to our "Bookspines" page from the tabs above.

Next blowout Friends' book sale: March 21-23
Great news: We have lowered the prices of our hardback and trade fiction books for our March 21-23 book sale to $1 apiece (trade books are those larger soft-covers). Our paperbacks of all genres remain ridiculously low at 75 cents each or 3 for $2.
Nonfiction hardback books are still a bargain at $2 and nonfiction trades are $1.50. Children's books are all 50 cents. Some exceptional items may be specially priced.
The book sale begins, as always, with a Friday preview night 5-8 p.m. -- you get first picks for $5 admission (or free, if you're a Friends member). Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., are free entry, and Sunday is our popular bargain day: Stuff grocery bags as full as you can for $5 each.
The sale is in the Folsom Library's meeting room. We always have thousands of gently used books, all donated from our generous supporters. We hope to see you there.
Next Sunday Cinema Series: 'Wadjda,' the moving story of a 10-year-old Saudi girl who challenges traditions to reach her dream
The next entry in the library's Sunday Cinema Series is "Wadjda," the story of an enterprising Saudi girl who signs on for her school's Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the funds she needs to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest. This is the first film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first full-length feature film by a woman Saudi director. The Sunday Cinema Series is sponsored by a partnership of the Folsom Public Library and the Folsom Film Society. March 16, 1 p.m. at the library. FREE. PG; in Arabic with subtitles.
