Get ready bookworms!

The Friends of the Newark Public Library will kick off its annual book sale on Saturday, April 17 in Centennial Hall of the Main Library, 5 Washington Street. The sale is a treasure trove for bargain hunters and book lovers, with thousands of paperbacks, hard covers, magazines, CDs and DVDs from which to choose.

Many of the items start at less than $1 each.

All proceeds go to the Friends of the Newark Public Library, which in turn uses the funds to assist the Library with its needs. Money from last year’s book sale was used to fund career and educational test preparation books, such as resume books,SAT prep and GED prep, among others.

There are four days to catch the book sale:
