Annual Used Book Sale At Arizona State Fairgrounds This Weekend

The annual VNSA used book sale will once again take place at the Arizona State Fairgrounds this weekend.

Book lovers from all over the state will flood the annual sale which will have a change of venue this year. More than half a million gently used books, DVDs and other media will be on sale to the public on Feb. 9 and Feb. 10.

The book sale will be held this year in the Agriculture Center Building instead of the normal Exhibit Hall Building.

“VNSA is excited to continue bringing great value to the community through our 63rd used book sale,” VNSA President Heather Rayner said in a news release. “You’ll find books, DVDs, CDs, computer games and puzzles available at greatly reduced prices.”

Proceeds from the sale stay local, benefiting a great cause, the Literacy Volunteers of Maricopa County. This non-profit is dedicated to teaching adults how to read, write and speak English and prepare for the GED.

“Our members work hard each year to bring this sale to the community on behalf of our charities,” Rayner said. “Our charities do an incredible service to the community and we are honored to support their efforts.”

Book sales will also benefit the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation.

VNSA has raised and donated more than $8.5 million to Valley non-profits through the years of the hosted sale.

Book prices will start as low as $1, with like-new paperback books at $2. Everything is half-price on Sunday, with the exception of items in the rare and unusual category.

Sale hours are set for Saturday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission is free but the fairground charges to park.
