Labor Day book sale returns to Pittsburg Public Library

Aug. 31—PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Labor Day weekend book sale, which had been canceled during the pandemic, will return this weekend to the Pittsburg Public Library.

The sale is planned from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday in the courtyard and is open to the public. It will be canceled in the case of rain.

Most books will be 50 cents to $1. Available genres include mystery, children's, fiction, nonfiction, romance, history, how-to and cookbooks.
