More than 15,000 books up for grabs
A library organization is hosting its annual fall book sale. Book-buyers have more than 15,000 titles to choose from at the Memorial Library in Room 116 through Saturday. Sale organizers said the used book sale is one of the largest in Wisconsin
The Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries sale takes place over four days with its proceeds benefitting a variety of events, special collections and a lecture series.
The annual book-buy event began Wednesday but continues Friday from 10:30 a.m.-7 p.m and Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. From 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, shoppers who bring a grocery-sized bag can fill it for $4. From 1:05 p.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, all remaining books are free, the library said.
Book prices are also reduced each day of the sale, but organizers said the books sell quickly.
