Sisters schedule annual used book sale

The annual Sisters of Providence Used Book Sale features children’s books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles and more!

Are you interested in those hard-to-find or out-of-print novels? If so, come to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, for the upcoming Sisters of Providence summer used book sale. You just might strike it rich!

The annual sale – sponsored by Linden Leaf Gifts – will begin July 31, and conclude August 11. Times are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. It will take place in The Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center while supplies last!

The sale began as a way for the sisters and other staff, associates and friends, to recycle old books they no longer wanted.

“There is always a lot of interest in this annual sale,” Linden Leaf Gifts Manager Ryan Sheehy said. “We have a lot of books and more. There is a little bit of everything for everybody.”

Book categories include hardbacks, paperbacks, spirituality, Bibles, novels, history, children’s books, gardening, health and crafting. In addition, in the past, CDs, DVDs and vinyl records have also been available.

Items are not pre-priced, but donations will be accepted. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the Sisters of Providence mission and ministries.

For more information, call 866-996-2947 or email rsheehy@spsmw.org.
