Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

You can get some great bargains on books this weekend. The Friends of the Library Book sale is taking place at the Mobile Civic Center Expo Hall, starting tomorrow. Every book is a dollar or less!

There are about 30,000 books for sale. You can find books in any subject your are interested in...fiction or nonfiction, cookbooks, gardening books, or reference books, and there are many children's books. The hope is to beat last year's total of more than $18,000, so that the library can continue it's online e-book program. Thanks to funds raised form the sale, people can check out books for their kindle or other e-reader for free. Amber Guy with the Mobile Public Library says, "It's so great to have your library of 50-100 books at your fingertips, 24-7. So many people are doing that. They are looking for the library to have that reading material, so its really important to have those ebooks."

The book sale takes place tomorrow from 9AM- 6PM and Sunday from 1 - 6PM at the Mobile Civic Center Expo Hall. Sunday is half price day.  Get there early, because there will no doubt be lines!
