Attention, book lovers. If you’re looking for books to read or add to your collection, read on. Seattle has plenty of great bookstores, but you can never go wrong with the library. Especially when they’re having a couple of used book sales in February, with books at $4 or less.

The sales are being put on by the Friends of The Seattle Public Library, a non profit, grassroots organization dedicated to elevating the Library and inspiring the love of reading in local communities.
