Join us at Woodrow Wilson Plaza on the third Thursday of each month for Capital Book Fest, our pop-up book sale.  From 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, shop thousands of gently used books, CDs, DVDs and vinyl all on sale for $6 or less. Books are provided by Carpe Librum, a local bookstore benefitting the nonprofit organization, Turning the Page. There is something for everyone at this sale: children’s books, teen reads, brand-new bestsellers in great condition, classic vintage hardbacks, and more!
