People line up hours early on the first night of this popular used book sale that supports the Multnomah County Library system of 17 branches.
The Friends of the Library will hold this 33rd annual fall used book sale Oct. 6 through 9 at 1635 NE Sandy Blvd., in the former car dealership building.
The sale offers 100,000 donated good and best quality books, tapes, CDs and DVDs at low prices: Most adult books start at $1.50 and children's items are priced from 50 cents.
Proceeds go to public library programs and for new books and materials. The sale is sponsored by The Oregonian newspaper.
Hours are 6 to 9 PM Friday, Oct. 6; 9 AM to 6 PM Saturday; 11 AM to 5 PM Sunday, and 9 AM to 3 PM Monday -- 75 percent discount day.

The sale building is near the intersection of Sandy and East Burnside Street. On-street parking is in the area, and TriMet's No. 12 bus serves the site.
