Pop-Up Used Book, CD, and Vinyl Sale to Take Place at Central Place Plaza

WHAT:

Restock your bookshelves this fall with a visit to our Rosslyn Reads pop-up book sale, in partnership with Carpe Librum. A nonprofit used bookstore, Carpe Librum supports D.C. based organization, Turning the Page, in aiding under-served students in the community.

On Saturday, September 26, in Central Place Plaza, the pop-up sale will include eight-thousand high-quality, gently used books, CDs, DVDs, and vinyls, all on sale for between $2.00 and $6.00, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

And while you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and support one of Rosslyn’s restaurants. You can find a list of local dining options, including takeout and curbside pickup, from our regularly updated directory.
