Pages for Pennies Book sale Opens Tomorrow at BVC

By Ellis Codjoe, May 18, 2017

The annual Pages for Pennies Book Sale returns this year with thousands of books and other items for sale on May 19-21 at the Bridge View Center.

As the name suggests, everything is priced to sell and the public will find great deals on used books, CDs, DVDs, LPs, board games, puzzles, and sheet music. For $2, patrons can purchase a hardcover book, puzzle, board game, CD, or DVD; a paperback or LP can be purchased for $1; and sheet music is $.50. Attendees can expect to find a wide array of book genres including mysteries, romances, science fiction, self-help, cookbooks, children’s storybooks, biographies, and more. All items are half-price on Sunday, however, the public will find the best selection and the best buys on the first two days of the sale.

Event organizers have been pleased by not only the quality of donated items but the quantity too as they have received more donation items than any previous year so customers will have plenty to choose from during the weekend sale.

Admission is free and open to the public all three days. Sale hours are 12-8 p.m. on Friday, May 19; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, May 20; and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday, May 21.
