The 2018 VNSA Used Book Sale

We are turning the page to another year...

Giving back to the community since 1957, we are proud to continue the story of the
VNSA Used Book Sale in our community

For 62 years, the VNSA Used Book Sale is a true Phoenix community event. We collect books and media from you, the public, all year long. Each February, the proceeds from thousands of used books, sheet music, media, and treasures are sold to benefit charities in our community.

We are very proud to have been voted Best Book Sale by the Phoenix New Times in 2016. Here's what they had to say:

"Some people have the Super Bowl. Others have Coachella. But for the literary junkies of the Southwest, there's the VNSA Book Sale. Short for Volunteer Nonprofit Service Association, the annual VNSA Book Sale is a treasure trove of gently used paperbacks, rare and unusual hardcovers, and the occasional audio-visual item, all organized neatly inside a warehouse at the Arizona State Fairgrounds. With only two days to shop and roughly a half-million books up for grabs, the February event sees its fair share of customers who not only camp out in line but carry their own suitcases for shopping. Better mark your calendar and set your alarm, because the book lovers who attend this sale mean business."

 Did you know that the VNSA Used Book Sale features Rare and Unusual items? For book collectors and aficionados of literary peculiarities, enjoy this look back at the historical documents and things you just won't find anywhere else, visit the Rare and Unusual section to see what was offered at the 2017 VNSA Used Book Sale.
