If reading more is your New Year’s resolution — or if you’re a year-round bookworm — there are two used book sales this weekend to check out.

Friends of the Richmond Public Library’s January Book Sale is going on tonight and tomorrow at the Main Branch (101 E. Franklin St.). Shop the half-price sale tonight from 7-9 p.m. Tomorrow from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., bring your own bag and fill it with books for only $10$5 for teachers with current school ID.

The VMHC’s Annual Used Book Sale also kicks off today and lasts through Monday, Jan. 16. Browse fiction and nonfiction books — many have historical connections — in the Museum Store from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day. Proceeds will go towards VMHC Education initiatives.

Bonus: You can also bring gently-used, historically themed books to donate to VMHC’s sale.
