GREAT FALLS — If you're looking for a great deal on a good book, the Great Falls Public Library is the place to be over the next two weeks.

The book sale happens every spring and is put on by "The Friends of the Library," a fundraising arm for the facility. The group also does book raffles.

Last year the book sale brought in almost $13,000.

It's an event that features something for just about everyone.

"It's a great opportunity for folks to come out and find some rare books, some new books for themselves and a lot of children's books as well," said Sarah Cawley, the Community Engagement Coordinator for the Great Falls Public Library. "We have a wide variety here from christmas to cookbooks, to travel, whatever it is that you might be interested in."
