The Penticton Library wants to help you get Dirty Books cheap

PENTICTON - If your personal library is in need of an update, now’s your chance to fill the shelves with new books from the Penticton Library’s Dirty Book Sale.

The foyer at the library-museum building will be full of books ready for sale at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. The books are not racy though. The term 'dirty' describes a collection of extra copies of bestsellers, and ones that are not circulating as often as they used to

There will be a variety of books set out including children’s books, fiction, non-fiction, large print, paperbacks, magazines, DVDs and audiobooks.

The average book is sold for one dollar, and all proceeds go towards funding the library.

MOVIE REVIEW: 'Wonder' is a sweetly sincere message movie
  OPINION It's hard for us cynical souls to walk into a movie advertised with the tagline "Choose kindness" and not shudder in trepidation. What sentimental hooey is this? What new hellish circle of cheese
