Organizers say next year's Book Bonanza inĀ  Berks County has been cancelled. The fundraiser was scheduled for the weekend of July 13th.

It's been cancelled because the books are currently stored at the former Berks Heim, but that's going to be torn down.

Officials say they hope to find a new place to store the books in the next two months. They say they're looking for place with around 7,000 square feet of space and plenty of parking.

The Book Bonanza raises money for scholarships and local libraries.
