Annual Book Sale - Delta County - 2017
The Annual Used Book Sale was held August 5th in conjunction with the Waterfront Arts Festival. This is Delta County's only fundraising event for the League. Attendees had a chance to enjoy a beautiful sunny day, browse the arts and crafts, hear local music and shop for a great deal on books. A few of the new Marquette County League members enjoyed helping with the event. The Book Sale had a good year this year!
The success of the Book Sale is directly related to the quality and amount of inventory. The larger and better the inventory, the higher the profit. Therefore, the LWV of Delta County is now collecting USED BOOKS, VIDEOS, CD'S, DVD'S, SHEET MUSIC, AND CASSETTES for next year's sale. The CD's sell like hotcakes, so we especially encourage the donation of CD and DVD collections. Books with a copyright date less than 10 years, children's books of any copyright date, and all other above-mentioned items in good condition may be donated anytime during the year at Northern Michigan Bank c/o Pat Rudden. This year- round drop-off location works out great, thus we have a large inventory of books to sell in August.
