Who says you can't find romance at a book sale? You'll find that and more — mystery, biography, crafting, cooking, you name it — at the giant Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale on April 23-28 at Remington's 1655 W. Republic Road.
The sale features slightly used and rare books, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs and vinyl records. A special section is devoted to children's books, board games and puzzles.
