The second annual Giant Book Sale is scheduled for Thursday through Sunday in the Westminster Presbyterian Church gymnasium, 1397 Thompson Bridge Road, Gainesville.

More than 20,000 gently used books and audiovisual materials will be available. Everything, except for collectibles, will be priced under $5, with many items at $1. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.
Young readers can find picture books, fairy tales, science, crafts, history, biography and many popular young adult authors. Adult nonfiction books will be sorted by subject for easy browsing, and fiction is sorted by author.
Volunteers will be on hand to help shoppers find the book they seek.
