There's something for everyone at the first-ever Rosslyn Reads! Spring Book Festival. The Rosslyn BID is excited to partner with Carpe Librum and the Arlington Public Library to bring this pop-up bookstore to the neighborhood for a one-day event.
Drop by to enjoy author readings and signings, and have fun browsing thousands of used books, CDs, and DVDs for sale on Central Place Plaza. Prices range from just $1-$5 (+taxes). All proceeds go to Turning the Page, a nonprofit organization that helps ensure students receive educational resources and a high-quality public education.
Carpe Librum runs on donations, so feel free to bring your used books to donate as well!
