April 15 Last Chance To Donate To Book Sale

There are only a few more days to donate books for the 27th Annual Friends of Legal Services Book Sale. The book drive, which started in February, ends on Friday, April 15. Book donation sites throughout the area are listed at www.fcls.net, or donors can call Franklin County Legal Services at 717-262-2326 to find the closest site.

The group accepts new and used books of all types, hardbound and paperback, plus magazines dated before 1950, sheet music, maps, audio cassettes, videotapes, and CDs, but not college textbooks, encyclopedias, children’s books dated before 1986, or Reader’s Digest condensed books.

Volunteers are busy sorting and pricing the tens of thousands of books that have already been donated, to prepare for the sale on Mother’s Day Weekend. The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., on Friday, May 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 8, in Laird Hall on the Wilson College campus in Chambersburg. Proceeds benefit local nonprofit organizations that provide legal services to lowincome residents and victims of domestic violence.
