If there’s anything better than a good library book, it’s a bad library book.Time does not favor all published works equally. Designs, ideas and topics are all subject to the whims of each new era — and as it passes, it leaves piles of books that were cool, once upon a time.
Within these discarded heaps are precious gems — if only because they are hilarious and, as such, hold enduring value.
Like many of the libraries in the region, the Lewiston City Library holds regular book sales out of the titles that have been donated or are no longer circulated. We perused the collection that will be offered Friday and Saturday and found among it these treasures that will be available for purchase:
