Here’s a way to support a couple of local schools AND get rid of those books you’ve held on to since college (high school?) at the same time. The Aldama Elementary School will host a book fair later this month and needs books to sell. Read on:
The Aldama Elementary PTA is planning to hold a Used Book Fair on May 24 to benefit the Highland Park school. But first the PTA needs used books to sell and is turning to residents for donations. PTA supporter Monica Alcaraz said a variety of books would be welcome:
We need all kinds of used books so we are asking for the community to support this event and donate used books that they no longer want. We are looking for both children and adult tittles, fiction and non-fiction, paperback and hardcover, and in English and Spanish.
Proceeds from the May 24 sale, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the school front lawn, will be used to support the Aldama PlayWorks program. Book donations will be accepted until May 17. Books can be dropped off in the “Book Drop Box” in the lobby of the schools main office at 632 N. Ave 50. Click on the link below for more details.
