    Once or twice a year the Metropolitan Library System has to make way for new furnishings by holding what could be called a large garage sale. This is not a book sale, but is instead a sale of surplus furniture and equipment.

    The next MLS retail sale will be conducted on Friday, October 12, 2012, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. The sale will be held at the Metropolitan Library System Maintenance Center, 1364 N.E. 3rd, Oklahoma City.
