Gently Used Book Sale

 Thanks for the Memories!
The end has come to the amazing run of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD Council PTA Gently Used Book Sale. During the past 14 years, with YOUR help, we:

  • Collected 1,052,668 books
  • Had $537,473 in sales
  • Volunteered 28,790 on-site hours (one man-year is about 2000 hours...) This does not include the countless hours PTA volunteers spent on their campus sorting books to be delivered, or the hours spent by the Committee working on logistics (site selection, finances, marketing, coordinating, etc.)
And over the past 14 years, Council PTA used those funds for:
  • Student Scholarships
  • Teacher Classroom Grants
  • Student Enrichment Grants
  • PTA Program Grants
  • PTA Training Grants 
  • Profit Sharing back to the Local PTAs 
  • Local PTA Training, Support & Outreach
  • Council Board Training & Enrichment
  • Back the Future Rallies
  • Life Member Receptions
  • Reflections Awards Ceremonies
  • President/Principal Luncheons 
  • Post Prom support for Creekview, Newman Smith, Ranchview & R.L. Turner High Schools
  • Gift to the CFBISD Libraries of $20,000
What to do with books you've collected for the sale? There are multiple organizations in our community that are in need of books - assisted living centers, children's hospitals and senior homes to mention a few - please reach out to them with your generous donations!

Thank you to all of you - PTAs and individuals and CFBISD administration & community - who have collected books, volunteered your time and promoted and shopped the sale. We couldn't have done it without you!!
