Our biggest sale! Look for us at the Lane Event Center, Saturday April 14 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Sunday April15 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. We'll have hundreds of books, magazines, and more. Look for our Facebook event for the book sale (, and please make room in your schedule (and on your bookshelf) for the sale!

If you like to be first in line for things, you can get an early ticket for the Friends of EPL Book Sale. On Saturday morning, April 14, you can pick up a timed, numbered ticket for early entry. Starting at 6 a.m., tickets will be given out outside the Fairgrounds gate by the Lane County Historical museum. Tickets are one per customer (so everybody in your family will need to get up with you, if they want early tickets). Tickets are numbered and timed from the 9 until 10:30 a.m. When you get your ticket, you can go have breakfast and come back about 15 minutes before the time on your ticket. (A virtual line, so to speak.)

If you don't especially like crowds, you can come anytime after about 10:30 that morning. The sale runs until 4:00 Saturday and Sunday 9:00-4:00. There will be lots of books, CDs, DVDs, and sheet music to choose from, even after the line has gone through.
