Pages for Pennies Book Sale begins collecting donations

Donations are currently being accepted for the third annual Pages for Pennies Book Sale.

The book sale is a fundraiser for the friends of the Ottumwa Public Library, the Bridgeview Center, and the Ottumwa Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Donations are not limited to books.

CD's, DVD's, LP's, sheet music, puzzles, and board games will also be accepted.

These donated items will then be sold at the event that will take place May 16th through May 18th.

"It just works out being a very nice weekend between Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend," said Ottumwa Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau Director Mark Eckman. "And it's just a great opportunity to take all of those things that you've cleaned out of your closet--your shelves and everything--and put them toward a good cause."

To donate items, stop by the Bridgeview Center during regular business hours.

Items can be left in the black draped shopping carts by the front entrance.
