Book Sale

Book Sale Fundraiser, March 23 – 24, 2018

A very special THANK YOU to everyone who braved the spring snowstorm on Saturday and those that joined us when it all settled down on Sunday. We had another record year and raised $19,428.72 of our $20,000 goal through the 2018 Book Sale.

Check it Out! Our annual Shelter House Book Sale will be held on March 24, 10:30am – 4pm and March 25, 12pm – 4pm at the Johnson County Fairgrounds, Bldg. C. We’ll have gently used books plus music, movies, art, and vintage tees for sale. Dedicated book worms can purchase Early Entry passes for admission to the Book Sale before the general public. Passes are $10 and early entry opens March 24 at 10am.

A book is a gift you can open again and again. Give yourself the gift of action, adventure, mystery, and romance while giving the gift of a brighter future and a place to call home for people experiencing homelessness. Proceeds of our book sale benefit Shelter House programs and support services including housing, employment, and mental health that help hundreds of men, women, and children each year to get back on their feet.

If you have books you’d like to donate, they can be dropped off at Bldg. B at the Fairgrounds starting February 25 from 1pm – 3pm. Donation drop-off will continue every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 10am – 2pm and Sundays from 1pm – 3pm through the week of the sale! Please direct all questions to Barb Peterson at barb@shelterhouseiowa.org.

Thank you to our literary supporters for sponsoring the 2018 Book Sale!
