The Big Book Sale at the Venice Library will happen Saturday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sale proceeds "go directly to the Venice Library for new books and DVDs for the permanent collection, craft program, library programs and other supplies," according to the Friends of the Library's website.
The sale, which is the library's No. 1 fundraising event, features donated fiction and non-fiction books, most for $1 apiece. Shoppers are asked to bring their own bags or boxes for hauling away their loot of reading for those rainy days and holidays ahead.
The sales is put on by the Friends of the Venice Library. The Venice-Abbot Kinney Memorial Library is at 501 South Venice Boulevard; (310) 821-1769.
