Volunteers needed for UTPA used book sale

The UTPA Alumni Association is looking for volunteers to help during their Fourth Annual Used Book Sale set for Saturday, March 24, at the newly-opened UTPA Alumni Center, 2401 S. Closner Blvd., Edinburg. Funds from the sale will be used for scholarships.

Volunteers do not have to be an alumni or UTPA student to help. The general public is invited to participate. With thousands of novels, nonfiction, children’s books, cookbooks, western, science and others donated for the sale, volunteers will be needed to help with the sorting, packing and sale of the books.

Books can be dropped off at the UTPA Alumni Center at 2402 S. Closner Blvd. in Edinburg or at Office Furniture USA, 1008 E. Pecan Ave., McAllen.

Arnoldo Mata, book sale chair, stated pick up is available for anyone with boxes of books that are too numerous or too heavy for an individual to deliver on their own. Call 956-665-2500 for pick up or more information, email Mata at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
