Book Sale Preparations

  • Volunteer Patty Spencer, of Fairlee, Vt., marks prices on books at a 15,000 square-foot donated space in White River Junction, Vt., on March 28, 2017. The books are to be sold at the annual Five Colleges Book Sale at Lebanon High School on Saturday and Sunday, April 22 and 23. Started in 1962 as a scholarship fundraiser for New Hampshire and Vermont students attending Mt. Holyoke, Simmons, Smith, Vassar and Wellesley, the sale will have 40,000 books, organized by 250 volunteers. Spencer has been volunteering for 35 years. Last year, the sale raised $50,000 from the sale of paperbacks at 50 cents each and hardcovers at $4-5 apiece. (Valley News - Geoff Hansen) Copyright Valley News.
