HERCULES -- The annual Citywide Garage Sale, an exercise in reuse and bargain-hunting, will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Maps listing registered garage sale locations will be sold from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot in front of the Hercules Public Library, 109 Civic Drive. The cost is 50 cents.

To encourage greater participation, Saturday's event will be the only citywide garage sale this year, unlike past years when a second one was held in September, according to a news release from the city.
