Friends of the Library Book Sale Off to Strong Start

Posted: Updated:

A popular Charlottesville book sale is supporting programs across the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library system.

People crowded into the Gordon Avenue branch Saturday for the opening of the Friends of the Library Book Sale. It included everything from books to vinyl records and paintings.

Most items were between $1-$3. Many book lovers purchased all they could carry.

"Our main difficulty is getting everything out because we have such limited space but we will bring out new books all through the week," said Friend of the Library Book Sale manager Bill Davis. 

The library expects to top last fall's sales - which totaled about $100,000. Proceeds help fund library programs and services.

The sale continues through November 17.
