I can’t believe I forgot to list this on the very full calendar of events happening this week.
The Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa Book Sale opens Thursday, September 11, at the State Fairgrounds (4-H building). The sale runs all weekend through Monday. Click the link for hours and other details. Admission costs $10 on Thursday only–Friday through Monday, everyone gets in for free.
This is the major fundraiser supporting PPGI’s education and community outreach programs, and it’s a fantastic place to find used books of all kinds, as well as CDs and DVDs. The prices are very reasonable, and Sunday, all merchandise is half-price. Monday, every item costs just 25 cents.
I volunteer with a group of women every year at the sale, and it’s a lot of fun. Also, volunteers can go to the 4-H building on Tuesday and take home any merchandise left over from the sale.
