Calling all book lovers! It is time to clean out your bookshelves, make your list of favorite authors and grab that piggy bank. The annual used book sale date for 2018 has yet to be determined. It is held in the Faith Community Center from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. At 50 cents a book and 25 cents for children’s books, it is the best deal around. We will again be offering $2 per bag from 1:30-3:00 p.m. The money received from the sale will go toward supporting St. Stephen’s Youth Ministry Mission Trips.
Donated items may be dropped off in the east entrance of the Faith Community Center (across from the school entrance) the week prior to the sale during regular business hours. Sorry, we will not accept encyclopedias, dictionaries, cassette or VHS tapes, text books, or magazines.
