German Books, Dirndl & Lederhosen Sale

Are unwanted German books taking over your bookshelves?  Is your child’s Dirndl or Lederhosen now three sizes too small?  Don’t throw them out!  Donate them to GIPA and we will sell them at Oktoberfest.  All proceeds benefit GIPA.  For Sunset Elementary, you may drop off donations with your child’s German teacher.  For West Lab, GW Carver and Coral Reef, please contact GIPA’s Library Team at for information on how to donate.
