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.
