RAVENA — The Book Nook at Grace United Methodist Church in Ravena is holding its semi-annual Huge Winter Book Sale on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Feb. 21, 22, and 23. The sale runs from 9 a.m. to noon and again from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

There’s something for everyone: Hardcovers and paperbacks, novels and nonfiction — tens of thousands of books to choose from, along with a mini-rummage sale.

Hard-covered books are a dollar each, paperbacks are 50 cents each; but five of either and get one free. Children’s books are 25 cents each or five for a dollar. CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes, as well as puzzles and games, are also available.

Breakfast and lunch will be available all three days.

Donations are welcome through Feb. 19. Books must be in good condition with no torn or damaged covers, no missing or water-damaged pages; books must be mold and dirt free. No textbooks, encyclopedias, or out-of-date computer and medical or health books are accepted.

No donations will be accepted from Feb. 20 through March 4 while the sale is being set up, conducted, and dismantled.
