The Lawrence Public Library is gearing up for its big fall book sale later this month.

Two years after its last three-day sale, LPL Friends & Foundation is ready to safely welcome shoppers again on Oct. 22-24.

A team of volunteers has spent thousands of hours processing new donations and will have the shelves stocked with more than 60,000 items, according to a news release from the foundation.

Masks will be required indoors, and 30 shoppers at a time will be allowed inside. However, 10 early-birds can reserve their spot by visiting LPLFF.org; the remaining appointments are first-come, first-served. No appointments are needed for outdoor shopping. Further details about the sale are available online at lplks.org/friendsfoundation/.

All books, CDs and DVDs are priced at $2 or under. All proceeds from the sale support library programs and services.

Sale times are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 22 and Oct. 23 and noon to 4 p.m. Oct. 24.
