“We are thrilled to welcome the community back to McAlister Square for an in-person event and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Really Good, Really Big, Really Cheap Book Sale,” said GLA executive director John Jaraczewski. “One bright spot of the coronavirus pandemic is the time it has afforded people to clean out their closets. Our inventory is strong and we expect to have more than 100,000 used books, DVDs and CDs as well as some vinyl records for sale.”
