All books for $5 or less -- what a deal! The 45th Annual Big Book Sale, put on by Friends of the SF Public Library, is going on all weekend at Fort Mason Center's Festival Pavilion. The sale, which is the largest book sale on the West Coast, features over 300,000 books in 50 different categories, as well as DVDs, CDs, books on tape, vinyl, and other forms of media. For the big bargain-hunters out there, if you wait out the sale until Sunday, all books will be only $1!

All proceeds are given to the San Francisco Public Library to fund education programs that promote literacy for children, teens, and adults. Last year, over $265,000 was raised.

This year also introduces SF Reads, a new city-wide collaboration converging SFPL’s One City One Book program, Litquake, and the Friends’ Big Book Sale.
