sponsor-thank-you-verticalThe annual BFK Book Sale

Join us during the last two weekends of August for the 2018 book sale!

This year’s sale will be held on the east side of Athens in the space between the new Aldi and Mannaweenta, on the corner of Gaines School Road and Cedar Shoals Road.  All books will be priced from 50 cents to $3, with prices dropping as the sale goes on!

In 2017, the BFK Book Sale made $20,000 across two weekends and had over 800 guests. In addition to selling 17,300 books, we also gave away an additional 12,000 books to educators and fellow nonprofits for use in their own programs. And we couldn’t have done it without our generous 2017 sponsors.
