Cheyenne’s DKG Book Sale offers a warehouse filled with fiction

The annual Delta Kappa Gamma used book sale will take place March 7 8 at the former State Liquor Division Warehouse.

The sale sees thousands of used books from every genre, with hard cover books for adults starting at $2, going up with rare and exciting books.

Delta Kappa Gamma is an international society of women in education. Proceeds are used to support educational programs in the community and scholarships for students pursuing careers in education. Money is also used to offer grants for current educators seeking to further their education and development.

In addition to the thousands of mystery, science fiction and non fiction books available, the book sale will also feature a new section dedicated to teaching materials.

Kathy Orr helped set up the section and said it could be a great resource.

“We have materials for home school, secondary, career building all grades and aspects of teaching,” she said. “Good materials don’t go out of date, and you can get them here for cheap.”

Hidden treasures of the 2015 DKG Book Sale

Browse the endless tables of books at the warehouse and you can encounter some truly funny, interesting and valuable titles.

I visited the stacks before anyone else and uncovered these gems:

“Hear How to Converse in German”

This “beginners’ guide” is a well worn LP pulled from the foreign language section with excellent cover art. The disc is a little scratched up, but I bet this gives Rosetta Stone a run for its money.

“The Coming Currency Collapse”

Published in 1981 and featuring a chilling cover image, this book made my investment banker friend laugh really hard. Joke’s on him: the book has two five star ratings and one three star on Amazon right now, all dated from 2013 and later.

Published 1964, a year into his presidency, the book is full of quotes that display the president’s “rustic” jokes. Why read Robert Caro’s exhausting three part biography when you can learn from the man who said being a reporter is proof of a character flaw and speculated that Gerald Ford had played too much football without a helmet?

“From Hardware to Cattle: The Arp and Hammond Story”

The story of a good, old fashioned hardware store right here in Cheyenne. This memoir was published in 1939.
