The purpose of the VNSA Used Book Sale is to raise funds for nonprofit human service agencies: Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation and Literacy Volunteers of Maricopa County. VNSA members work year round preparing and producing one of the largest charitable used book sales in the country.
More than 50 years ago, VNSA was organized as the Visiting Nurse Service Auxiliary. The VNSA Used Book Sale was begun in 1957 as a fund-raiser for the nonprofit Visiting Nurse Service. The first sale raised about $900. In the mid-1980's the Visiting Nurse Service was purchased by a large hospital corporation. The members of VNSA chose to remain active with nonprofit service agencies directly benefiting our community. Because our Owl Logo was very recognizable in the community, we kept the "VNSA" initials and became Volunteer Nonprofit Service Association. The VNSA Used Book Sale continues, and all sale proceeds benefit local nonprofit service agencies.
