Good reads for cheap prices at 31st Great Okanagan Book Sale

Lines out door for book sale

The 31st Great Okanagan Book Sale began with lines out the door in Kelowna, Thursday, and organizers hope it will continue the same way through Friday and Saturday. 

The sale offers more than 25,000 fiction and non-fiction books for a loonie or toonie, from a variety of genres including romance, history, cooking, gardening, language and children's. 

DVDs, CDs and audiobooks are also being sold for a reduced price. 

"We do this fundraiser once a year ... so that we can support the Okanagan Regional Library for the special programs they don't get enough funding for," says organizer Ursula Wedemeyer. 

"It has been absolutely amazing. We had a lineup outside the door starting at about 8 a.m., and by 9:30 a.m. when we opened, it was amazing. People are just so enthusiastic, it's awesome.

"We are always putting out new stuff, it's not like it's a one-time thing. We're always replenishing all the tables so there's something new even right up till Saturday, so come on out." 

Kelowna Friends of The Library raise $30,000 to $40,000 each year to benefit the Okanagan Regional Library system.

The sale continues at the Immaculate Conception Parish Hall on Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
