From now through early next year, the Volunteer Non-Profit Service Association, which puts on the yearly VNSA Used Book Sale, is accepting your no-longer-needed hardcovers and paperbacks.
The book-buying potpourri -- the largest book sale west of the Mississippi River that will be entering its 55th year -- is scheduled to take place on February 12 and 13, 2011, at Arizona State Fairgrounds' Exhibit Hall, 1826 West McDowell Road.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
