Annual book sale returns to Desert Foothills Lutheran Church


The Desert Foothills Lutheran Church and Pre-School has announced that it will be hosting its ninth annual book sale Feb. 12-14 in the fellowship hall.

The sale will feature thousands of books, including paper backs, hard backs, cook books, children books and audio books, as well as DVDs and video. On Sunday, the sale will offer patrons to fit as much as possible into a paper grocery bag for only $10.

The sale is to run 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Feb. 12 and Feb. 13; and 10 a.m. to noon on Feb. 14. The Desert Foothills Lutheran Church is located 29305 N. Scottsdale Road.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit the church outreach programs, which enables DFLC to better serve the needs of its community as well as providing much needed financial assistance to establish local groups through grants which help them fulfill their missions, according to a press release.

In addition, a majority of the books that remain after the sale are made available to local community service groups for distribution to shelters, homes and care facilities across the valley.

In preparation for the Book Sale, Desert Foothills is accepting donations from the public of gently used paperbacks, hardbacks, puzzles and audio books.

Donations can be dropped off at the church between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays. Contact Dwayne Richard at 480-710-2403 for more information or for assistance in picking up any donations.
