Twenty-five cent book sale benefits HCSTA Scholarship Fund

It takes a lot of quarters and a lot of books to raise $700, but that's just what the Annual .25 Used Book Sale does every year. The funds go toward the Hilton Central School Teachers' Association Scholarship Fund. Books are donated by familes throughout the district all year long and then a two-day sale is held at Northwood Elementary School. "Traditionally we make around $700," said Julie Rapp, Northwood library media specialist who organizes the sale. "We sold over 1,600 books yesterday - that's a lot of quarters!"
