Speaking of volunteers…thank you, Book Sale Workers!
We moved, you followed. Changing the location of our annual Used Book Sale from the Community Center to the American Legion on Center Street N in 2016 was challenging and successful! Would our loyal customers once again follow and support our major annual fundraiser? The answers is yes, we had great volunteers and customers all three days., Thank you!
And our volunteers stepped in, as always, sorting books, setting up and taking down tables and signage, serving as cashiers, consolidators, helpers of all sorts.
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.
Our Friday night Historic Vienna Inc. Members Only Preview SALE was successful again with many happy customers leaving with loads of books.
The 2017 Used Book Sale location and date has not yet been determined. More to follow!
Historic Vienna, Inc. will hold our annual Used Book Sale on Saturday, June 9 from 9 to 4 and Sunday, June 10 from 12 to 5 pm on the side lawn of the Freeman House, 131 Church Street, NE. The sale includes thousands of books in many categories, including fiction, biography, travel, cookbooks, classics, how-to, history, and many more. There is a large selection of children’s books.
Books are priced at $1.00 for any paperback and $2.00 for any hard cover, with children’s books and “treasures” priced separately. All proceeds of the sale benefit the programs of Historic Vienna, Inc.
Historic Vienna, Inc. is collecting books starting May 1st for our fund raiser, the Used Book Sale (Sat June 9 and Sun June 10). Donations are tax deductible and may be brought in to the Freeman Store, 131 Church Street NE from 12 to 4 Monday thru Friday or left on the front porch at any time. Please don’t leave encyclopedias, textbooks or magazines of any “Reader’s Digest” type books. These simply don’t sell yet create lots of extra work for volunteers.
Books may be brought to the Freeman Store during open hours (and you may get a receipt) or left on the porch at any time. For questions or information, give us a call at (703) 938-5187.
Thank you for your donations and we hope to see you at the sale!
