Albany - - People looking for good deal on a book didn't have to travel too far Saturday.
The Albany Dougherty Library held a massive book sale. Books ranged in price from 50 cents to $2.00.
People packed the old Badcock building on Dawson Road looking for a bargain. With thousands of books on site, people could sort through a variety of fiction, non-fiction, and children books.
The library does this to make room for newer books and get rid of duplicate copies.
"We bring them together and separate them and offer them for sale to the public and the money goes back to our book fund so we can buy new books for the library," says Library employee Gary Barton.
