10,000 books for sale in Stevens Point

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - Hundreds of book lovers flocked to Stevens Point Wednesday.

The 23rd annual Stevens Point Area Retired Teachers' Association book sale got started at Jackson Elementary School. It runs through Saturday.

Organizers say more than 10,000 books are up for sale along with magazines, movies, and music.

"Our goal is to provide low-cost reading material and keep recycling the books that are used and to encourage reading," said

"My family absolutely loves books and I love books because I don't know why people don't love books," said 

All of the books are donated by Portage County community members. The money raised benefits more than 30 community organizations.
