WOODSTOCK – Readers can stock their bookshelves for cheap at the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County Spring Book Sale.

The sale runs Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Woodstock Square Mall building lobby, 110 S. Johnson St. The sale continues next week, running from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, June 10 through 13.

On the sale's final day – Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. – a paper grocery bag filled with books costs $5.

Hard-cover books otherwise cost $1, mass-market paperbacks cost $.50 and children's books cost $.25.

The selection comes from donations – both by the public and by area libraries. The books span genres from kids to popular fiction, science to biography, and everything in between, according to a news release from the Environmental Defenders.

The Defenders' Green Spot Used Book store takes donations of re-sellable books all year. The store is located on the main floor of the Woodstock Square Mall building.

The sale benefits the Defenders, a not-for-profit dedicated to preserving and improving the environment, the release said.
