Event Description

The Annual Friends of Eugene Public Library Book Sale will be held Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10 at Lane Events Center (Lane County Fairgrounds) Performance Hall. Admission and parking are free.

Proceeds from this all-volunteer project go to support Eugene Public Library programs and services, including Summer Reading for children and teens. VISA/Mastercard will be accepted, as well as cash and checks.

Shoppers will be able to choose from thousands of gently-used and like-new books on all topics, at bargain prices of only $1.00 for most small paperbacks and $1.50 for most hardbacks and large paperbacks. Also for sale will be DVDs, audio books, sheet music, and a huge choice of music CDs. Recent bestsellers will be available in the Good as New section, and collectors can check for rare and specialty books in Individually Priced. A Children's area will offer a large selection of books, DVDs, and CDs for kids.

The Book Sale is the Friends of Eugene Public Library's major fundraiser each year. Over 300 volunteers work on the Book Sale, many year-round. In 2010, the event took in more than $80,000 to support Eugene Public Library programs and services.

Your Photos

YouNews My Roses My Roses
I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
YouNews Private Drone Used to Report Fire Private Drone Used to Report Fire
Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
