For those who've been following our coverage of the closing of the original Nice Price Books in Carrboro, there's one more chance to get some of their inventory this weekend.

According to a news release, Nice Price has partnered with the Friends of the Chapel Hill Library for a benefit bag sale on March 9 and 10. Nice Price will donate 20 percent of sales to the Friends of the Chapel Hill Library, with books priced at $10 a bag on Saturday and $7 a bag on Sunday. Records, CDs and movies will also be available at 75% off their lowest marked price.

The sale is part of the Friends of the Library's efforts to meet the financial needs of the Chapel Hill Library's expanded facility. Friends has pledged $200,000 toward that goal this year.

Nice Price co-owner Cindy Kamoroff said in the release that she saw an opportunity to help the library and clear out store inventory.

“For many years, Friends of the Library volunteers have shopped with us. With the decline in bookstores and the strained economy, libraries have an even more important role in society. We want to show our gratitude for the support the people of Orange County have given us. And we need to sell a lot of stuff.”

Nice Price Books announced the closing of its Carrboro location last month after more than 20 years at its Boyd Street location, citing declining sales and increased competition from such outlets as online sellers as among the reasons for the closing.

The sale will be held at Nice Price's original location at 100 Boyd St. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 9, and 1 p.m to 5 p.m. on March 10.
