The sale is a benefit for the nonprofit organization and is held at the San Luis Obispo Veterans Memorial Building.

Most books sell for $1 per inch. Vinyl LPs, DVDs and CDs are $1 each, and audio and video tapes are 50 cents.

The hours are 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday for members only (memberships sold at the door), 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

This is the 38th book sale hosted by the SLO Friends of the Library, which over the course of the past 37 years has raised more than $300,000 to preserve and enhance library services, according to a news release from the organization.

Some of the money raised has gone toward funding major renovations at the San Luis Obispo City-County Library and providing it with updated resources, according to the release. The library is holding its grand reopening on Saturday.
