Book lovers listen up, a mega book sale is taking place this weekend in Hastings.

The Hastings Public Library is holding the 31st annual Big Top Library Book Sale at the Hastings City Auditorium. They have over 80,000 gently-used books on sale, featuring every genre.

You can also find great deals on magazines, CDs and more. One book lover was even camped out in front of the Auditorium waiting for the doors to open. Organizers say it's the perfect time for readers to stock up on books.

"We have kind of the same set up every year it's sorted by genre so they can see where they want to go and people can spread out and get lots of books," said co-organizer Amanda Collins

Doors are open from 5 to 9 tonight for a 5-dollar Preview event. On Saturday, hours are 9 to 5, wrapping up Sunday from noon to 4.

They will have a 2-dollar all you can fit book bag sale. All of the profits will benefit the library.
