Defenders plan fall used book sale

WOODSTOCK – The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County will hold a used book sale from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Oct. 27 at the Woodstock Square Mall, 110 S. Johnson St., lower level.

Beginning Oct. 20, books will be $5 a bag. Payment is by cash or check only.

For more than 40 years, Environmental Defenders has been a leader in encouraging reuse and recycling in McHenry County.

Each year, the Woodstock-based nonprofit holds several sales of good-quality used books, albums, videos and software that have been donated by individuals and area libraries.

All proceeds support the organization’s environmental programs and services.

The sale offers flea-market prices on thousands of top authors and best-selling novels, biographies, sports, travel and adventure books, self-help titles, cookbooks and crafts, philosophy and religion, business guides, computer manuals and more.

Book donations can be made even after the sale ends at the drop box in front of the Woodstock Square Mall or at the Defenders’ “Green Spot” used bookstore on the first floor of the building during regular hours.
