Used Book & Uniform Sale

SATURDAY, JULY 13, 2019

The Used Book and Uniform Sale (UBS) is a fundraiser for the PTO and a service to all O'Connell families, held in July of each year. We offer used books in all conditions, not just "excellent." Why not keep a second set of "poor" condition books at home?

The PTO provides an easy and efficient way to sell your used books/uniforms. Consign with us and get top value. Proceeds benefit the O’Connell community.
