VALPARAISO | Kappa Kappa Kappa sorority of Valparaiso is hosting its sixth annual Used Book Sale on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Tri Kappa is dedicated to the advancement of charity, culture and education in our community. Money raised by the sorority throughout the year is used to fund these three causes.

The book sale will be held at the National Guard Armory, 1502 Linwood Ave., Valparaiso. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Tri Kappa members collect books all year to prepare for the sale. Members of the sorority receive wonderful support from Larry and Doug Klemz, of Home Mountain Printing, as they sort, store and move around 30,000 books.

Members of both Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson middle schools collect thousands of books to donate each year. This year, Justin Klemz and Valparaiso High School National Honor Society students will help unload books at the armory.

The used book sale is a major fundraiser of Tri Kappa sorority, but it has evolved into a collaborative project for the community as a whole. Members of Kappa Kappa Kappa would like to thank the Valparaiso community for continued support of the project.

Proceeds from the used book sale are used to fund scholarships for high school seniors in Porter County and grants to nonprofit organizations in the Valparaiso area.
