During the sale, all books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, etc., will be marked down at 50% off.

A private preview for Friends of OCLS members only will take place on Thursday, May 19, from 5-7pm. If you are not a member, you can sign up for $15 at the door, and membership also entitles you to an extra 10% off your purchase.
