BOOK DONATIONS NEEDED! As we do every year, we will be selling books at the Pelham Children’s Center Pumpkin Festival on Saturday, October 12th (9:00 am-1:00 pm). We are seeking donations of books of all kinds (but NOT old textbooks, guides, dated booklets please), as long as they are in marketable condition. This year, we will also be selling CDs and DVDs, but NOT VHS tapes. The book sale will be inside the Daronco Town House on Fifth Avenue near the train station.

If you would like to donate books, CDs or DVDs, please put them in sturdy boxes/bags and drop them off at the Pelham Children’s Center (at the back entrance of the Pelham Town House) during the week of Monday October 7th until Friday October 11th. On Friday October 11th, we will be setting up the book sale from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. if you would like to drop off then that would be great. Please come through the back entrance of the building and ring the Pelham Children Center’s bell – do not leave books by the door.

We look forward to seeing you there and thank you on the behalf of the Pelham Children’s Center!

Please reach out to me if you have any questions regarding the event.
