The annual Newman Used Book Sale is held the third weekend in September each year, Friday: 4-9 p.m., Saturday: 9 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. and Sunday: 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Due to Covid-19 the normal 2020 sale has been cancelled, click on the link on the homepage for information about our No Contact Drive Thru Sale. The proceeds from this sale help to support the programs and services provided by the parish. It has also become a wonderful community event.
All of the books sold have been contributed by members of our community. We receive books and related items from individuals, businesses, schools, libraries, and other interested groups.
Books are screened as they are received so that water damaged, excessively soiled or torn books are not kept for the sale.
In addition to supporting the church's programs and services, our used book sale actively promotes reading for both pleasure and purpose for all age groups. The sale not only offers good quality books at very affordable prices to the community, but also to the students of the IUP community.
The sale is the perfect time to stock up on books and other media material. It is also a great opportunity to discover new authors, explore new subject areas, find inexpensive materials to supplement your major and/or pick up some new books for your kids.
This popular event always attracts large crowds, so come early. Food and beverages are available for purchase each day. Sunday is "bag day," and we encourage everyone to see book sale prices for more information.
Whether you make a donation, volunteer your time, or just come and buy books, your support is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
The sale is held on church property at 1200 Oakland Avenue, Indiana, PA. Get directions.
Limited parking is available on site. There is a parking garage across the street from the church, which is available at no charge on Saturday and Sunday; however on Friday, parking fees do apply.
