Children Literature Hawaii (CLH) is hosting a children’s book sale to help raise funds for the June 2012 Biennial Conference. There will be good deals on previously-owned children and young adult titles and we encourage people of all ages to drop by and take a look. This sale isn’t just for parents!

CLH hopes people will find an enjoyable read at a good price and pass the book along to children in their extended families, neighborhoods, or church/community groups. Some of these titles would be welcome additions in any classroom library. And of course, there may be books adults might want for their own personal collections.  Here’s the details:

What:  CLH Annual Children’s Book Sale
