The gym was packed during the book sale's opening day Saturday.

The local branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) kicked off its annual book sale Saturday, with an overflowing parking lot at Brevard College, where the sale is held in the gym. The 1,050 cardboard boxes in the gym, AAUW calculates, translates into more than 30,000 books the organization hopes to sell to assist in the effort to create scholarships for young women. The sale will continue until Thursday at 5 p.m. More photos on page 1B.
