Wake libraries' book sale, festival starts this week

Posted February 14, 2011 8:25 p.m. EST

Just a quick reminder that the Wake library system's annual book sale starts on Thursday with more than 450,000 at bargain prices. You'll find both used and new books.

As I wrote last week, organizers have turned the sale into a festival with live performances Friday and Saturday and children's activities on Saturday. It runs Thursday evening through Sunday at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.

Check my earlier post for more.

I'm thinking this is a great place to stock up on gifts and books for the summer. I'll also be buying some books to fill up the little vacation packs I put together to keep my kids busy on long trips and car rides. Just be sure to bring a check or cash - credit cards are not accepted.
