A line went out of the library doors as hundreds of book fans attended the $5 fill a bag sale at the William H. Jervey Jr. Venice Public Library on July 9.
Friends of the Venice Library hosted the bookstore's sale in the library's large community room with 18 tables for shoppers to look through.
Many adults and families filled up their bags with hard covers, paperbacks, coffee table books and CDs.
Throughout the sale, Friends of the Venice Library restocked tables with fresh merchandise and staffed a busy bookstore for shoppers, stated a press release.
“The sale was such a success, the Friends were able to clear out our workroom and free up bookstore shelves, making space for the ongoing community donations we receive," said Friends Bookstore Manager Deborah Kostroun.
"We are happy to have run an event the whole community enjoyed.”
