It’s time for solitary bookworms to unite and gather at the Lane Events Center for the Friends of Eugene Public Library Benefit Book Sale, the first time in two long COVID years the event has been able to be held at the Lane County Fairgrounds facility. Browse at your leisure for gently used books — fiction and nonfiction, paperback and hardcovers in all genres, including children’s books — that can be found at the two-day event for as low as $2. Additionally, CDs, DVDs, audiobooks and sheet music can be had at great prices. Also, in a new twist this year, a silent auction will be held for three handcrafted Little Free Library boxes. All proceeds help support the Eugene Public Library and its Summer Reading programs for children and teens.
The Friends of Eugene Public Library Benefit Book Sale is 9 am to 4 pm Saturday, April 9 and 10 am to 4 pm Sunday, April 10 at the Lane Events Center, 796 W. 13th Ave. Free admission and free parking.
