Press Room

We are proud of the tremendous excitement this sale generates each year. Many people wait all year for the chance to buy from our huge selection of books and media. As the result of past sales, over $1,300,000 has been raised for non-profits providing education and literacy programs. In addition, 100% of books/media remaining after the sale have been given to many area non-profits.
