HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Volunteer Partners to hold used book sale Aug. 24-25

August 11, 2023 

Chippewa Falls, Wis. – Go on a literary adventure, find new romance, learn a new skill or simply calm your mind with a new-to-you book from the HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Volunteer Partners used book sale August 24-25. 

Brandy Sikora, manager of volunteer services at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital says collecting and selling books is a Volunteer Partners’ tradition.

“It’s so easy to use technology now to read the news or a biography or a fictional love story, but there’s just something about holding a book and turning the pages that still appeals to many people,” she says. “That’s part of the reason our annual book sale is successful.”

Sikora says the sale is a meaningful way to raise money for the Volunteer Partners’ scholarship fund, which benefits area students pursuing careers in a human health care-related field.

The Volunteer Partners’ Book Sale will be held outside the HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital plant services garage (located by the hospital receiving dock) the following days and times:
  • Thurs. Aug. 24, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Fri. Aug. 25, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

New and gently used books can be donated for the sale through Aug. 23 in the main lobby of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital, 2661 County Hwy. I in Chippewa Falls. Donation hours are 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please do not donate textbooks, dictionaries, or encyclopedias.
