People flocked to the third annual one-day Chilliwack Rotary Outdoor Book Sale on Saturday.

With 30,000 books, there was a huge variety to choose from.

The Rotary Club of Chilliwack started the first outdoor sale in 2020 as they had heaps of books to sell and were unsure if their annual indoor sale, which happens every year in October, would be going ahead due to pandemic restrictions.

The outdoor sale is Saturday, Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. beside the Rotary building at 44870 Wolfe Rd. in Chilliwack.

People are asked to bring reusable shopping bags or bins. There will be some reusable shopping bags for purchase at the sale.

They accept cash (US money at par), debit or credit.
