Pages for Pennies Coming in May


Ottumwa’s annual book sale will make its return later this spring.

Pages for Pennies will be held at Bridge View Center’s Expo Hall on May 5-7. Doors are open Friday from Noon to 8 PM, Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM, and Sunday from 11 AM to 5 PM. The sale is free and open to the public all three days.

At Pages for Pennies, where almost everything is priced at $2 or less, book enthusiasts will find thousands of titles, authors, and genres. There are also great deals on audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, LPs, games, puzzles, and sheet music. On Sunday, fill one of our bags for $5. Proceeds will benefit Friends of the Ottumwa Public Library, Meet Ottumwa, and Bridge View Center, Inc.

Want to help make this year’s book sale the best yet? Donations will be accepted April 3-28 in the carts in the Main Lobby of Bridge View Center, 102 Church St., during business hours. Sale organizers are looking for gently used books, games, puzzles, LPs, CDs, and DVDs. No magazines, encyclopedias, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, or materials in poor condition, please.
