Friends of the Boise Public Library book sale wraps up Sunday

The Friends of the Boise Public Library's annual book sale closes Sunday.

The Library warehouse has been open for customers and stocked with books, records, videos and CDs since Thursday. The books are all donated by the public and bookstores, according to a Friends of the Boise Public Library press release.

Bonnie Longstreth, chairperson for the book sale, said they were expecting a large crowd for the Sunday sale. The last day brings cuts in prices: all items will be half-priced. That means, more people are expected to take advantage of the sale, she said.

Last year they had a line stretching out of the warehouse the entire duration of the Sunday half-off sale, she said.

Proceeds from the four-day sale benefit the Boise Public Library. Donations are tax-deductible, according to the press release.
