Community Support Shines at Annual Book Bazaar

The Friends of the LSU Libraries hosted another successful Book Bazaar that drew book enthusiasts from all over the region to LSU’s John Parker Coliseum on April 12-14. The annual book sale offered more than 60,000 new and used books as well as CDs, DVDs and vinyl records, and raised an impressive $68,000 in support of acquiring collections for LSU Libraries that could not have been purchased otherwise. 

“I’d say this is one of the best book sales I’ve been to in Louisiana…They always have a great selection, and I try to come every year on the first day,” said Anna Allsop, one of the Book Bazaar’s regular customers.

LSU Libraries would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Friends of the LSU Libraries for their hard work and commitment to organizing and hosting this incredible community event!
