CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Bookworms have the chance to get some deals in Charlottesville this week while giving back to area libraries. The 49th annual Spring Book Sale at the Gordon Avenue Library will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until April 6.

Thousands of books and tapes were donated by community members throughout the year.

Organizers with the Friends of the Library group say they've already received lots of positive comments about the quality of items on sale.

“It's just a wonderful way to get books out to people at a very reasonable price, helps the library and it's a pretty friendly community event that a lot of people really enjoy,” said book sale manager Bill Davis.

Each book sale typically raises about $100,000 for the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library System. Prices will be cut in half on all items left next weekend.
