BOOKWORMS and literature fans can take advantage of a good bargain at a town hall’s book sale.

Durham County Council’s library service is holding a Durham Town Hall Book Sale where a massive stock of withdrawn surplus library books will be available to buy at a reduced price.

There will be thousands of books on sale covering almost every genre from picture books for under-five’s to adult fiction and non-fiction.
