The sale will feature fiction, including science fiction, mystery, romance, classics, and popular books; nonfiction, including history, politics, biographies, and autobiographies; young adult books; and children's books.

On Saturday, there will be a $10 a bag sale.

They are currently accepting book donations through May 31, during open hours, at Wheaton Sports Center, 1000 W. Prairie Ave. in Wheaton; Health Track, 875 E. Roosevelt Road, Glen Ellyn; and Wheaton Park District, 1777 S. Blanchard St., Wheaton.
