EASTPOINTE — The Michigan Military Technical and Historical Society is inviting the public to join it for its used book sale.

The sale will take place over the course of two weekends: Nov. 9-10 and Nov. 16-17. It will take place from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. on the Saturdays, and from noon to 3 p.m. on the Sundays. The society will host the sale at its museum, which is located at 16600 Stephens Road in Eastpointe.

“We’ve done several of them over the years,” said museum President Chris Causley. “They’re a good fundraiser. We had a very large, anonymous donation of books from a local estate, so it’s basically free money for the museum to help us keep the lights on and the doors open.”

The sale will help support the museum, pay operating costs and fund programs.

“We have our young modelers club in the winter, we have our lecture series that is currently running; we have a lot we do for people in the community,” said Causley. “We take donations (of books) from members from the local community. We haven’t done one in a while — they’re a tremendous amount of work — but we got this large donation, so we wanted to bring it back.”

Those interested can contact the museum at (586) 872-2581. The museum operators hope that the public will take advantage of what the society believes is a great opportunity.

“It’s a good opportunity to pick up some books,” Causley remarked. “We’ve priced them to move. Most are priced between 50 cents and $1. We have mostly nonfiction, but we have something for everybody.”
