Book Sale Recap

Ranging from classics to contemporary titles, the Used Book Sale offered something for everyone, and over 50,000 books were sold.

Shoppers at the 2024 B-CC Used Book Sale

Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School’s Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) hosted its annual Used Book Sale on March 9 and 10, attracting book lovers from the community. The event, organized by the dedicated members of the PTSA, proved to be a major success, not only in providing wonderful books to attendees but also by serving as the largest fundraiser for B-CC clubs and activities.

Throughout the sale, volunteers played a vital role in assisting attendees, sorting books and managing the flow of the event. Sophomore Simon Yilma explained, “We were there for a while helping, both before and during the event. I actually found it really rewarding.”

B-CC parent Lucila Del Aguila also volunteered for the Used Book Sale. “First of all, I love books. We moved into the Bethesda area approximately two years ago, and I heard great things about the Book Fair. [They have] great prices and really interesting finds in books,” she said. “My experience at helping out organizing the books was great. I was able to help my daughter’s school, and I found some good books just to browse when I was helping.”

Junior Koko Kashimoto attended the Book Fair as a customer. “It was good! I went with my family, and we all got the books we wanted. My dad found a book that’s not published anymore so he got it with $3. I think it costs like $80 to normally buy it,” she said. 

Ranging from classics to contemporary titles, the Used Book Sale offered something for everyone, and over 50,000 books were sold. Unsold books were donated to various organizations. In addition, the Book Sale provided an opportunity for Montgomery County students to earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours. This year, the event distributed over 4,000 SSL hours.
