Used Books for Sale: 11/5/11 at USM, Portland Campus

By Carol McCracken (Post # 1,010)

The used book sale to benefit Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on the University of Southern Maine campus, Portland, has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 5th. The sale will be held at 102 Wishcamper Center between 10 am and 4 pm in.

Over 5,000 books have been collected in excellent condition and will be sold at low, very low prices to benefit OLLI. This is an academically stimulating program for adults 50 years old and older. The used book sale that had been scheduled for last Saturday was canceled due to a water main break on Bedford Street – right in front of the Wishcamper Building. The water to three USM buidings, including Wishcamper, had to be shut off.

The annual 9th week performances will be on-going elsewhere in the building. At 1:30 pm, the OLLI Singers will perform and at 2:30 pm., the OLLI Senior Players will perform as well. Both in room 133.
