 "The Last Book Sale"

Preview Times:  August 3 (Friday) through August 9 (Thursday), excluding Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 


Please take advantage of the full week of preview!  The volume and quality of material to be sold will require some time to fully inspect and appreciate.



Pre-Auction Event:  August 9th (Thursday), 5 p.m.


All registered bidders, and their repective guests, are invited to attend a catered meet-and-greet in the Royal Theater at 5 p.m.  A great BBQ dinner will be served and this will be a wonderful time for attendees to meet new friends and catch up with old friends!  Around 6:30, we will hold a screening of The Last Picture Show.  This will be a rare opportunity to screen the movie that put Archer City on the map -- and in the same theater featured in the movie!  This event will be a great kick-off to this special auction, and we look forward to seeing you there!
