San Ramón Action Alliance plans another book sale

The Community Action Alliance will be holding its second Gran Venta de Libros Usados April 28 at the Regional Museum of San Ramón. The first book sale was a huge success with nearly 1,000 people attending and over $2,200 raised for the two beneficiaries.

The April Book Sale will feature an offering of over 4,000 used books, CDs, DVDs, magazines and other educational materials, both English and Spanish. There will also be a collection of jewelry and other handicrafts available for purchase. Prices for paperback books will be 1,000 colons. Hard bound books start at 2,000 colons. Discounts are available to all students. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the Regional Museum and the Hogar Para Ancianos de San Ramón, the senior center.

To ensure that the sale is successful the Community Action Alliance is requesting donations of used books and other educational materials. Drop off locations have been set up in San Ramón at the following locations: Cruz Roja, Aromas, Café Delicias, Bocaditos, and the Regional Museum. Arrangements can be also made to receive donations from contributors outside the area.
