You’ve got ‘em, sale needs ‘em
The Community Arts Council is now accepting gently used books for its annual book sale. Please drop off all your gently used books, puzzles and even CDs in the box located under the stairs at the Rollin Art Centre.
They cannot take encyclopedias, text books or library books.
This is one of the Community Arts Council’s biggest fundraisers, so please help with this great fundraiser. Just think: the more books you donate the sale, the more room you have to pick up different books.
