Vintage Vinyl Record Sale Sat., April 20

In conjunction with International Record Store Day on April 20, the Friends of the West Lafayette Public Library will hold a two-day sale of LPs, 45s, and boxed sets.  Prices start at 50 cents.  The sale will run from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, when all records will be half-priced.  This sale, sponsored by the Friends of the West Lafayette Public Library, marks the second year the library has held an International Record Store Day event.  International Record Store Day began in 2007 as a way for musicians and independently owned record stores in the United States and around the world to celebrate music.    The sale has not included 45s for several years, so there will be a large selection available.  In addition to the records, around 2,000 VHS tapes of western movies and serials will be for sale.  Most date from before 1960.  The Friends seek donations of all types of records, all year long.  Albums can be left at the Circulation Desk, or pick-up can be arranged by calling the library at 743-2261.  Donations are tax-deductible.  The net proceeds of all album and book sales are an important source of funds for the library.  The West Lafayette Public Library, located at 208 W. Columbia St., offers free parking in the garage across the street.
