Labor Day Book Sale

When: Sept. 3-5 2011

It's always seemed strange to me that so many folks refuse to check out used book stores — yet those same people will flock to a used book sale. So it is this weekend as the Manitou Springs Public Library (701 Manitou Ave., hosts its annual Used Book Sale, which runs Saturday through Monday as part of the Commonwheel Artists 37th Labor Day Festival in Manitou's Memorial Park. Many aficionados turn it into a two-way experience, first donating their books, DVDs and CDs (textbooks, condensed books, encyclopedias and magazines not accepted) at the library, then going to the festival and buying what others have given. And everybody wins. — Ralph Routon
