Thousands of books will be available covering all ages and interests, ranging from hardback nonfiction, fiction, paperbacks, cookbooks, music CDs, DVDs and much more.
Paperbacks will be available for 25 cents and hardbacks are 50 cents. A special volunteer pre-sale will be held Thursday, Sept. 29, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for all who volunteer to help with the book sale.
