Within four days, the Peter White Public Library earned $5,000 from a used book sale.
If that's not surprising enough, employees at the sale say the first $2,000 was made on opening day, Thursday.
On Sunday, for the last day of the sale, visitors could purchase an entire shopping bag of books for three dollars.
"Thatâ??s pretty awesome," said Shavon Harris, a Northern Michigan University student reacting to the news. "I love reading, so get like three bags of books for nine dollars."
The libraryâ??s next used book sale will be in June.
