KENNEWICK, WA. -Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries this weekend is holding what might be its biggest book sale ever.

The first people to show up Friday morning could barely step around each other as they perused tables filled with hardcover books, paperbacks, audio books and movies.

"There are thousands and thousand of books," says Ruth Dupris, president of friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries. She says they were overwhelmed by the amount of books donated for this sale.

"We had to take back several boxes because we had too many," she says.

Book lovers can sort through a wide selection of books of all genres: western, romance, sports and cookbooks, and children's titles.

Many books priced at just a quarter.

Dupris says the sales, held every spring and autumn, raises about $8,000.  Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries will use the money to help support library programs.

   The book sale resumes at 9 a.m. Saturday and goes on until 5 p.m. at the main branch in Kennewick on South Union Street. The sale continues from 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
