OVERVIEW

The May 2021 Books-by-the Bag (BBB) Sale was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as the photographs below will demonstrate. For those who have attended BBB sales in the past and/or viewed sales photographs from previous years, it will be apparent that the 2021 BBB Sale had lower attendance and lacked the elbow-to-elbow crowds in the aisles. This was due in large part to customers cooperating with requests to wear masks and observe social distancing. Finally, a new Annex was added to the sale area, thanks to the hard work of Pueblo City-County Library District employees and Books Again volunteers.
