LaSalle Public School is back after Covid with their annual Giant Used Book Sale.
After missing the last two springs, the school’s Librarian, Martha Martin said they are excited to finally host this opportunity to repurpose books, encourage literacy and summer reading, and support two young teens who are orphans, through the charity Creation of Hope.
Creation of Hope was started by prolific, award-winning children’s author Eric Walters in 2007. The initiative was made to support orphans in Kenya. According to creationofhope.com, the project currently supports over 400 orphans and impoverished children throughout the area.
LPS will be holding their book sale Thurs. June 23 from 9a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Fri. June 24 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The event is open to the public, and will offer books for all ages. Paperbacks are $1 and hardcovers are $2.
Martin said the school also hopes to have some DVDs and gently-used toys.
“Our families and friends donate and we literally carpet the gym floor with books. Every single penny goes to support our two kids, a boy named Christmas and a girl named Nduku,” said Martin.
