Those looking to stock up on bargain books, DVDs, CDs and other media should look no farther than Fort Mason, where the San Francisco Public Library is holding its second annual spring book sale beginning today.
The sale offers more than 400,000 books -- both bound and on tape -- as well as vinyl and other media, with everything is priced at $3 or less.
In addition to having 25 percent more inventory for sale this year, the book sale also features a rare and collectables booth.
Library members and donors were able to attend a special preview reception Wednesday evening, but today marks the first day the sale is open to the public.
The book sale is being held at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day through Sunday, and admission is free to the general public.
All proceeds from the book sale benefit the library's education programs promoting literacy for children, teens and adults.
