Today’s featured event:

Check out the great deals at the 35th annual Friends of the Metropolitan Library Book Sale at Oklahoma Expo Hall at State Fair Park.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today and Sunday. Admission is free.

The Friends of the Metropolitan Library System was formed in 1978 as a nonprofit corporation for the purpose of focusing public attention on library services and needs. In order to raise money for library projects and initiatives, the Friends decided to host an annual book sale. The funds raised at the  book sale would be granted back to the Library System to underwrite programming and services not included in the yearly budget.

The first sale took place in 1981 and has grown to become one of the largest in the nation, with more than 600,000 books for sale. It takes place during last full weekend of February each year. Hundreds of thousands of books, magazines, audio and videos are sold over a three day span – most for $1 or less, cash or check only.
