Looking to start 2012 with a little less clutter? Gather your gently used books, CDs, DVDs, videos, vinyl records, magazines, calendars, puzzles and computer games for Pellissippi State Community College’s 30th annual Faculty Senate Book Sale.
Donations are now being accepted at Pellissippi State’s Blount County Campus and at the school’s three Knox County locations—the Pellissippi, Division Street and Magnolia Avenue campuses.
The sale, which has raised more than $94,000 since its inception, accepts donated items from the community that are then offered at prices ranging from 50 cents to approximately $4. Each campus hosts a two-day sale.
Proceeds go to the Pellissippi State Foundation, which supports student enrichment by providing scholarships, new technology and equipment. Funds raised at the sale are earmarked for the Faculty Senate Scholarship. The scholarship provides tuition and fees for full-time students who maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA and meet additional scholarship criteria.
Dropoffs may be made weekdays, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., at the following locations:
- Blount County Campus, 2731 W. Lamar Alexander Pkwy., front office
- Division Street Campus, 3435 Division St., Knoxville, main office front desk
