Auction winners in the Portland Metro Area may be able to arrange pick up instead of shipping the titles to you, especially if you purchase many lots. Please contact our incoming co-chair for pick up arrangements.
If you have questions about our fundraiser, please contact our incoming co-chair, Susan Cackler. If you are on a book committee and receive a large quantity of quality children's books, please consider donating them to CSD. Please contact our incoming chair to make your donation.
