The popular, annual UHS Used Book Sale will be held Feb. 22 and 23 in the high school gymnasium.

If your New Year’s resolutions included downsizing, the Unionville High School PTO would like to assist by accepting used books, videos and CDs for its popular, annual fund-raiser: the Used Book Sale.

Proceeds from the book sale, held in the UHS gymnasium, go directly to the high school PTO’s General Fund, which supports many grant projects and enrichment activities at UHS.
