The 52nd year of Oskaloosa’s annual used book sale will begin at noon, Thursday, October 5 in Center Court of Penn Central Mall and will continue through Saturday, October 7. Once again, AAUW is partnering with Friends of the Oskaloosa Public Library. Sale hours are Thursday, noon to 8 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All kinds of used books, CD’s, DVD’s, games, puzzles and magazines have been accumulating since last year’s sale in space donated by SHARE Iowa and sorted this summer. Prices will be the same as previous years. On Saturday, a bag of books can be purchased for $5.00 Unsold books will be left from 3 p.m. Saturday to 3 p.m. Sunday and can be picked up for free. Goodwill will pick up the remaining books on Sunday.

AAUW (American Association of University Women) is a non-profit organization and has been a leading advocate for girls and women, awarding scholarships and financing research. Proceeds from the book sale are used for scholarships at William Penn and through the national organization, and for local activities benefiting women and girls. Friends of the Oskaloosa Public Library (FOPL) raises funds for items and activities not included in the library’s budget.

AAUW and FOPL would especially like to thank Penn Central Mall, SHARE Iowa, Goodwill, HyVee and Manhole Adjustable Riser Co. for their helpfulness and cooperation.
