All Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) teachers and media specialists with a current WCPSS ID are invited to attend the Wake County Public Library Book Sale and select two free boxes of books for classroom use. Boxes will be available, but teachers are encouraged to bring carts to carry boxes to their cars. Teachers must show a current WCPSS badge to receive the free boxes. This year, in lieu of a teacher pre-sale, the book sale will open early and WCPSS teachers and media specialists are invited to attend the sale at any time during the public hours.
