Pellissippi State: Blount County Campus hosts Faculty Senate Book Sale March 24-26

Pellissippi State Community College’s Blount County Campus hosts its annual Faculty Senate Book Sale in late March, and the community is invited to take part.

The sale runs 8 a.m.-6 p.m., March 24-25, and 8-noon, March 26. It takes place in the upstairs lobby of the Blount County Campus, 2731 W. Lamar Alexander Pkwy.

The event raises funds that go to the Pellissippi State Foundation for student scholarships.

“This is really a community event,” said Ashley Boone, a book sale planner and associate professor of Mathematics. “A lot of students and community members look forward to the sale, because the prices are so good for these books, music, and movies.”

All types of publications will be available—from fiction and nonfiction to craft books and cookbooks to collectible magazines such as National Geographic. Other items likely to be offered: movies and CDs. Donations have been made by Pellissippi State faculty, staff and students, as well as community members.

Used books, movies and CDs in good condition will be collected until March 21. Bring donated items to the Blount County Campus.
