Book Sale to Support Literacy

Saturday, April 21, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Sunday, April 22, 12 noon to 4:00 pm

Dare County Family Recreation Park
(behind the Brewing Station windmill)

Book donations will be accepted starting in February or March. Check the column at left for details.

Our annual book sale fundraisers (held twice a year) support your local literacy programs. Each sale contains a tremendous variety of books, both hardback and paperback, and they make terrific (and inexpensive) gifts! At the sales you will find fiction, non-fiction, history, business, biographies, cookbooks, art books, books on spirituality, kids’ books, puzzles, audiobooks, videos, LPs and more. 

All proceeds from the book sales help the DLC buy workbooks for their students and help support the DLC’s literacy programs. 

Volunteers Always Needed: If you can spare some time to help us out before, during and after the sales, we need volunteers to:

  • sort books (we have several sorting parties in the month prior to the sale)
  • distribute publicity posters prior to the sale
  • assist on setup day with loading and unloading, unpacking books, moving tables, etc.
  • assist on sale day with maintaining tables, repacking books, moving tables

Have some time to volunteer? Just email us at info@dareliteracy.org about what you are interested in. Check out all of our volunteer opportunites. We'd love to hear from you!
