Get great deals on books at Wake library's massive sale

Posted December 10, 2015

It looked like Black Friday at the Wake County Libraries' Annual Booksale in a former Winn-Dixie Supermarket in the South Station Shopping Center, 1514 Garner Station Blvd. in Raleigh, on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2009.

Wake County Public Libraries' massive annual book sale runs through Sunday at the Jim Graham Building at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.

You'll find all sorts of books for kids to adults. Many of them are in gift-giving condition. It's an inexpensive way to load up on some great gifts for everybody on your list - and keep the kids busy over the long winter break. (I mentioned the sale in my Weekend Plans post as well).

Here are the hours and book prices each day for the remainder of the sale (it opened Thursday):

9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday:
Hardbound books $4
Paperbacks $2
Children's books $2

3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday Sunset Sale
Hardbound books, buy 1 get 1 $4
Paperbacks, buy 1 get 1 $2
Children's books $2

9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday
Hardbound books $2
Paperbacks $1
Children's books, buy 1 get 1 $1

9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday
Box of books $3

On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the library will host a Festival of Reading, featuring magic shows at 11 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.; face painting and balloon twisting from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; an instrument petting zoo from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.; and activities from Marbles Kids Museum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There also will be games, prizes, crafts and a visit with the Bookmobile.
