The Friends of the Public Library, which is an independent organization supporting the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, is putting on its annual fall book sale.

The warehouse holds over 100,000 titles, but thousands more will be available to purchase so make to check your shelf and your wallet. All of the books are either library discards or private donations, so don’t be surprised if you find notes or writing in your purchase.

Daily markdowns, clearance bins and discount carts will be available throughout the sale, as well as a large selection of non-library science fiction novels. All mass-market paperbacks will be 50 cents. The books are organized by categories like self-help, fiction, horror, sci-fi and local. More books will be on tables outside, if the weather permits. Restocking will take place daily and volunteers are happy to guide you to a specific section and answer questions. Members get 50 percent off purchases on Sunday.

10 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3 and Friday, Oct. 4; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5; noon-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6. Free admission. The Friends’ Used Book Store at the Warehouse, 8456 Vine St., Hartwell,
