Due to unfavorable weather conditions, The Twin Valley Elementary Center (TVEC) has moved the dates for its 5th annual Used Book Sale fundraiser to Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1, from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday Feb. 2, 2013 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. The event will take palce in the TVEC Large Group Instruction (LGI) Room and feature reasonably priced books, CDs, DVDs and audio books for children and adults as well.
The book sale is sponsored by TVEC’s volunteer parent-teacher organization, the TVEC Partners in Education (PIE). The monies raised by the book sale will help to fund numerous contributions to student life at TVEC including school assemblies, field trip transportation for students, classroom supplies, and various annual student events. Last years’ book sale raised over $2,000 for student activities.
The event is directed by Used Book Sale chairpersons (and PIE members) Gina O’Doherty and Tina Duplass. In their roles as committee chairs O’Doherty and Duplass oversee the sub-committee responsible for collecting, sorting, and pricing the Used Book Sale inventory.
According to O’Doherty the items which will be available include a variety of fiction and non-fiction categories such as mystery and suspense, romance, interior decorating, gardening, sports, cookbooks, biographies and many more. The wide selection of children’s books that will be available will be conveniently organized according to age groups. Books will be available in both hardback and paperback forms, with the cost of items ranging in price from 50 cents to $3.00.
“Nothing is more than $3.00,” O’Doherty said, “There is truly something for everyone at this book sale.”
Only cash or checks will be accepted for payment at the book sale. Additionally, there will be a PIE bake sale taking place on site during the sale.
“We would like to that the Used Book Sale sub-committee, the businesses who are hosting donation bins, and the parents and other community members who provide us with their donations,” said Duplass.
Anyone with questions on the Used Book Sale and/or donations can contact Gina O’Doherty at
Twin Valley Elementary Center is located at 50 Mast Drive, Elverson, PA 19520, right next to the Twin Valley Fire Department, and can be accessed from West Conestoga Rd./Rt. 401.
