If you prefer to own books or just enjoy sifting through mountains of books, magazines, videos, etc., the Metropolitan Library System in Oklahoma City has a solution for that, too: The Friends of the Library Annual Book Sale.
Each year, more than 600,000 books are for sale, making it one of the largest in the nation. Admission is free. This year’s Book Sale will be from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 20, and Sunday, Feb. 21, in the Oklahoma Expo Hall at the State Fairgrounds. If you are a Friends of the Library member, you can shop early – at the members-only pre-sale event from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19.
If you want to even more time around the books (and what reader wouldn’t?), then volunteer.
