CCHS Library Used Book Sale

Each year during Open House Week, we have our annual USED BOOK SALE. This is a great time to get some good books at extremely reasonable prices while you are supporting our CCHS Library.  All funds earned from this fundraiser are used to purchase new books and resources for use by our students and staff. 

 

Used books for sale consist of ones that have been donated which we cannot use or that have been “weeded” from our own Library. All used books are 25 cents each or a Bag of Books is $1.00 (we supply the bag). What a great deal!

 

SALE hours are 7:30 AM-4:30 PM (Mon/Tues/Fri), 7:30 AM-3:30 PM (Wednesday) and 7:30 AM-3:00 PM & 5:00 PM-9 PM (Thursday) during Open House Week.  We hope you will have a chance to stop by, browse, and find some good reads and some good deals.
