Wichita on the Cheap

Live the Good Life for Less & Never Miss a Deal

Huge Used Book Sale at the Wichita Art Museum and Free Drop-In Tours

Add to your library (on the cheap!) from an excellent selection of gently used volumes on art and other subjects. The Friends of the Wichita Art Museum will hold a used book sale in the art museum’s Boeing Foyer on Saturday and Sunday, May 1 and 2, 2021. 

Admission to the museum is FREE on Saturday, so plan a little extra time to peruse the art as well.

Art Museum Used Book Sale Schedule

I was told this year’s sale will be the largest ever, so be sure to check out all the great hardcover and paperback selections in many categories.
