Annual CWRU Book Sale To Begin on June 1


  • Scene Archives
Now in its 73rd year, the annual CWRU Book Sale will take place from Saturday, June 1, through Tuesday, June 4, in Adelbert Gym, 2128 Adelbert Rd. on the campus of Case Western Reserve University.

Back in the day, the sale began with book donations, but over time, it has grown to include music (vinyl, CDs and sheet music), movies, games, puzzles and “ephemera.”

This year, more than 80,000 items were donated.

Hours are noon to 5 p.m. on June 1 and June 2, noon to 5 p.m. on June 3 and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 4. Admission is free except from 10 a.m. to noon on June 1 when earlybird visitors pay a $20 admission. Funds raised will support the Association for Continuing Education's adult education programs.

Margaret Bernstein, the locally based author of the children’s series Donuts for Dad and WKYC-TV’s Director of Advocacy and Community Initiatives, will be on hand for a book signing that takes place from 1 to 5 pm. on Sunday, June 2.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
