It was a book-lovers paradise at the Wyoming Fairgrounds Wednesday as the Lambton County Library held its annual book sale.
An estimated 13,500 volumes were available to the public either $1 per book or $5 for a shopping bag full of summer reading material.
Brian Bowley, a technical services supervisor with Lambton County Libraries, says the county buys up to 20 copies of a book when it comes out, depending on the waiting list of readers. But after a few years, as people have read and returned the book, it sits on the shelf.
Bowley says computer program determines which books haven’t been checked out in three years and they’re offered for sale.
It’s estimated 13,500 were available at Wednesday’s event.
