As indicated by signs plastering the entrance to James Branch Cabell Library, the annual VCU Friends of the Library Book Sale has taken over the basement level of the building this past week.

Three rooms in the basement of the library have been transformed with shelves of old and donated library books, with the one sale room covered with box after box of rare out-of-print magazines and musical scores.

In the same room, there are tables of old comic books, going as far back as the 1980s, just from a quick glance at the vast, seemingly endless collection.

In addition to print materials, the sale offers boxes of vinyl records, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and others – most of the material is less than $2.

Tonight and Friday, Oct. 29, all items left will be half off.

The sale will last until 5 p.m. tonight and open again tomorrow at 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.  All proceeds of the sale will benefit VCU Library programs.
