Schools across the Tri-State will let out for summer soon, which means you're going to need to find something to keep the kids, and yourself, occupied over the course of the roughly eight-to-ten-week break. How about exploring new worlds, or diving into an intense murder mystery? Maybe a spy thriller, a story of romance, or science fiction and fantasy is more your style? Whatever your taste, you can stock up on all types of great stories that will keep your attention all summer long during the annual Book Sale at Willard Library in downtown Evansville.
