Newspaper Book Sale – Friday, June 23, 2023

DCHS is selling duplicate hardcover bound volumes of local newspapers not needed in our collection. Now’s your chance to take home a piece of history!

More than 100 books from ~1980s-2010s are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Books are $25 each.

The sale will be held 10:00 am – 3:00 pm on Friday, June 23, 2023 at the Douglas County Historical Society MN, located at 1219 Nokomis Street, Alexandria, MN.

Unfortunately, DCHS does not have the storage space to keep the 100+ duplicate volumes, and we’d much rather see them re-homed in our community!

Thank you! See you soon!
