For some the fun has already already begun last weekend the St. Hugo Parish Library hosted it's second annual Book Donations sale for books for the children of St. Hugo's Parish. Adults however benefited as well with a selection of seldom seen, some out of print classic books. This writer was looking for a good but cheap Russian Primer. Looking as in I will never find it but I will try anyway. The Actual St. Hugo's Rummage put textbook in "Items we can't take category."
The price of however of advanced high school and college text books new or used is through the roof.
The at the St. Hugo' Library sale I almost tripped over The Essentials of Russian The Third Edition circa 1958.When I got home I noticed something buried in the binding. I was rewarded by an invitation a Beach Party on Sunday June 14th 1958. As best I can figure by turning the invite round and round if you cross the the Delaware River north of Philadelphia and keep going left when ever the opportunity presents itself you will eventually arrive at the At the Atlantic Ocean.
The only hard part would be matching the invitation to the party you were supposed to go to. It did say bring food.
You never know what will turn up at a first class Rummage Sale. I do know that for a fact. The money raised at the Library's book sale for St. Hugo's School and its Children is anticipated to approach the the four figure mark. Books that weren't sold at the Library sale were transported to the St. Hugo Rummage Sale in a half dozen Pick up truck runs loaded by Library volunteers and Parish staff that ran past the the dinner hour.
If you like books, the rare, the unusual, and the hard to find they will be at the St. Hugo Rummage Sale.
