Donated Items Solicited for Annual Book Sale

OTTUMWA-Donated items will soon be accepted for the sixth annual Pages for Pennies Book Sale.


Donations of gently used books, CDs, DVDs, LPs, board games, puzzles, and sheet music will be solicited Monday, March 20 through Friday, May 12. Items can be dropped off in the lobby of Bridge View Center during regular business hours. They should be placed inside shopping carts located immediately inside the center’s main entrance. Please note, all donated items must be clean and in good condition. Those that are dusty and dirty or possessing a musty odor cannot be accepted. Donations must be brought to the Bridge View Center as book sale volunteers are unable to make pick-ups.


The book sale proceeds benefit the Friends of the Ottumwa Public Library, Bridge View Center, Inc., and Greater Ottumwa Convention + Visitors Bureau. This year’s sale is scheduled for May 19-21 in the Expo Hall at Bridge View Center.
