St. Clare annual used book sale proves a success

September 20, 2012

Tables and boxes full of books lined the St. Clare of Montefalco Catholic Church social hall last week for the school’s 28th Annual St. Clare Used Book Sale.

“We had more books and better books than ever,” Mary Jeanne Franzinger said of the school’s largest fundraiser of the year and “important community event.”

The sale amassed a collection of books from all genres — fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, cookbooks, educational books, music, religion, decorating, self-help, humor and more — available at discounted prices.

“We supply many used book dealers in addition to the many hundreds of neighbors in our communities who use our book sale to fill their libraries,” Franzinger said.

In five days, the school raised more than $29,000.
