CSM Geology Museum, 1310 Maple Street – BOOK AND GARAGE SALE
Most prices will decrease about 50% each day. Our Museum book sale will be in the Museum building, in the room across the hall from the Museum entrance. We have sorted through dozens of boxes of books, several hundred maps, and several hundred U.S.G.S. folios. There’s a wide range of interesting publications for rock hobbyists, as well as explorationists. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards. Members of the “Friends of the CSM Geology Museum” receive a 20% discount on all their purchases. Remember that there is a small fee for parking in campus lots and on campus streets. Please make sure to pay for a parking permit from one of the parking kiosks and place the permit on your dashboard, to avoid being ticketed.
