2016 Book Sale volunteers: Thank you for your help!

Thank you to all of the volunteers who sorted, set up, sold, consolidated and just plain helped to make the 2016 Used Book Sale a great success. Every volunteer hour counted and we could not do it without all of you.  Wonderful that American Legion Post was able to host us in a grand fashion this year and provided an excellent facility and food and drinks for sale.  Free coffee was quite helpful for the early morning shifts!

Proceeds from the sale help pay for the maintenance of HVI’s collections, mounting of exhibits, printing of HVInk and other publications and brochures, administrative costs such as stationary and postage, and insurance on the contents of the Freeman Store.

No more book collecting for our Book Sale this weekend!

We have received a massive amount of fine quality books and we thank you so very much for your donations.  Please do not drop off any more books at the Freeman Store as we have all that we need! If you have books that you would like to donate, we hope you’ll set them aside for when we begin collecting for the next sale. Thank you!

Historic Vienna Used Book Sale at the Vienna Community Center

Date: June 8 (9:00 AM-4:00 PM) and June 9 (12:00-5:00 PM)
Location: Town of Vienna Community Center

Historic Vienna, Inc. is still collecting books for our largest fund-raiser, the Annual Used Book Sale. Don’t forget to donate your gently read volumes and mark your calendar for June 8 and 9!

This year the sale will be held at the Town of Vienna Community Center on Saturday, June 8 from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM and Sunday, June 9 from 12:00-5:00 PM.  Your tax-deductible donations may be brought in to the Freeman Store at any time during store hours – Wednesday through Sunday from 12:00-4:00 PM, or left on the front porch at any time.

As usual, the sale will feature a wide variety of excellent quality hardbacks and paperbacks in many categories – fiction, biography, science, history, cookbooks, gardening, the arts and many others plus the always fabulous collection of children’s books. If you have a few hours to help with sorting, please call us at (703) 938-5187 for a schedule!

 

Please take advantage of this opportunity to help our organization by giving us your wonderful books to sell at reasonable prices back to our community.  If you have any collectable or fine quality books, those help us a great deal and are popular sale items in our Treasures Section. When dropping off books if it is necessary for you to do so when rain is in the forecast, please insure that plastic is used to protect your donations as the porch is not always a dry place. Thank you for your donations and we hope to see you at the sale.  Please contact Historic Vienna if you would like to help us out.

We ask that you please refrain from leaving encyclopedias, textbooks or magazines of any kind (even if you remember the class fondly or think that the magazines are special interest) and “Reader’s Digest” type condensed books. These simply don’t sell and our volunteers must move them, sort them, move them again and, ultimately throw them away. Over the years, we have tried and tried to find homes for these types of publications but we have discovered that they just aren’t right for our book sale. You’ll help us more by choosing to donate them elsewhere!
