           Rare books and collector’s items are welcome and are priced and displayed separately at the sale. The group will provide receipts for tax purposes on request. To make special arrangements to donate a large quantity of books, call Franklin County Legal Services at (717) 262-2326.

           “The sale will take place on May 29 to May 31, and we invite everyone in the area to come to our new sale location—the Chambersburg Mall,” said Carolyn Carter, a volunteer with the group. “It is easy to reach, plenty of parking will be available, the location within the Mall will be clearly marked, and we will have tens of thousands of wonderful books for sale at bargain prices.” The sale will run from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM on Friday, May 29, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, May 30, and from noon to 4:00 PM on Sunday, May 31. Proceeds support the provision of civil legal services for low-income individuals in the community.
