Locals have the chance to pore over hundreds of thousands of books during the Book Nook Bonanza used book fundraiser taking place this weekend.

The three-day event is the largest used book sale on the East Coast, according to organizers, and it will be based out of the York City Ice Arena on Vander Avenue in York City.

The Book Nook Bonanza — entering its 59th year — benefits the York Hospital Auxiliary, the hospital’s volunteer organization.

This year’s proceeds will be used to fund the Auxiliary Small Grants Program, which helps individuals and programs within WellSpan, according to the health provider’s website.
