Westfield residents and church choir members Mary Lynne Nielsen (center) and Betty Webster (right) are two of the many devoted volunteers who help sort, organize and set up the Giant Book Sale at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Westfield every year. St. Paul’s Director of Music Charles M. Banks says, “We’d be lost without all of these helping hands, not to mention the heavy lifters who receive and unload all the donated books.” This year’s Sale runs from Sunday, November 3rd through Tuesday, November 5. Book donations are accepted starting on Friday, October 18, 2013. To become a Giant Book Sale set-up volunteer, call (908) 232-8506 X17, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. High school and college students are always welcome and can receive community service credits. Credits: Photo by Bill Howard, St. Paul's
St. Paul's Upcoming GIANT BOOK SALE Needs Your Book Donations
Friday, October 11, 2013 • 2:09pm
It’s that time again! St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Westfield is seeking book donations for its 26th annual Giant Book Sale. Sponsored by the Friends of Music at St. Paul’s, this year’s sale starts on Sunday, November 3rd (noon-5pm), continues on Monday, November 4th (9am-9pm), and closes on Tuesday, November 5 (Bag Day, 9am-noon). Especially needed are hardback and paperback fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, audio books, videos, computer software, compact discs, records, DVDs, sheet music, puzzles and children’s books. The church is unable to accept donations of textbooks, magazines, encyclopedias or Reader’s Digest condensed books.
If possible, please bag and label your donations by category.
You may drop off your donations daily starting on Friday, October 18. An outdoor pod unit will be available for book drop-off in the church parking lot (use the Euclid Avenue entrance). Weekday donations, Monday through Friday, are accepted after 3:00 pm and all day on Saturdays and Sundays through November 2nd.
The Friends of Music at St. Paul’s wish to thank all book donors and buyers who have made this annual Giant Book Sale a success for the past 25 years. We are especially grateful for your generous participation in 2012, when Super Storm Sandy put a stop to the sale on the first weekend in November. The sale had to be rescheduled for December 9-11, 2012. Despite Sandy-related difficulties, however, Sale devotees continued to donate and we had a record turn-out in December.
All Sale proceeds are used to fund the various and wonderful musical programs at St. Paul’s.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is located at 414 East Broad Street (near Euclid Avenue and across from Town Hall), in Westfield, NJ 07090. For further information, please call 908-451-5082 X17, or e-mail Director of Music Charles M. Banks, email@example.com.
