Five Colleges Book
Sale becomes online-only
Due to the ever-changing nature
of COVID-19, the Five Colleges Book Sale has made the decision
to change this year’s sale to online only. The two-day
sale, scheduled for Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April
19 at Lebanon High School, will not take place. In addition,
we are no longer accepting donations for this year.
What does this mean?
Beginning in mid-April, we
will begin listing books online through a partner website.
As this is our first time
doing an online-only sale, there are bound to be some hiccups
along the way so please bear with us as we start in on this
unprecedented time. The health and well-being of our volunteers,
patrons, and the communities where we live, work, and play
is of utmost importance to us. We feel this is the best
way to continue the sale while doing our part to prevent
the spread of coronavirus.
Please contact Priscilla Dube
at 603-848-3311 or [email protected] if you have any
than 300 volunteers, including graduates of the five colleges and community
members, work to make the sale possible.
