Do you have good books you no longer need? Bring them to the Chambersburg Mall on Saturday, May 14, or Saturday, May 21, from 9AM to 1PM—the two Book Drop-Off Days for this year’s Friends of Legal Services Book Sale. Follow the signs to the drop-off site entrance and volunteers will help you unload the books and roll them in.
The group gladly accepts new and used books of all types in good condition, plus artwork, CDs (including audio books), DVDs, sheet music, puzzles, and board games, but not encyclopedias, textbooks, or phonograph records. All proceeds help provide legal services in civil cases to low-income families in our area.
And be sure to come back to the Mall on Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18, for the 36th Annual Book Sale–back after a two-year gap!
