MADISON HIGH’S 5TH ANNUAL USED BOOK SALE Madison PTSA Library Fundraiser Madison HS Cafeteria, Portland, OR 2735 NE 82nd Avenue Saturday, January 24th from 11:00am - 3:00pm Sunday, January 25th from 11:00am - 3:00pm Madison PTSA is sponsoring the 5th Annual MAD Used Book Sale with a huge range of books spanning all ages, subjects, and genres, and with prices starting at just 50 cents. The 2-day event also features Madison’s talented student musicians, as well as food from local restaurants. It is being held in Madison’s Cafeteria, made famous by 2008’s original Twilight film, and still toured by fans. Proceeds benefit Madison’s Library, the most utilized media center among Portland Public’s high schools. Madison’s Media Specialist, Nancy Sullivan, oversees an astonishing array of events such as 2014’s Author Visit with award-winning writer Angela Johnson, and this year’s Poetry Slam featuring Oregon’s Poet Laureate, Peter Sears. Ms. Sullivan is also the founder of Verselandia, Portland Public’s noted poetry slam for high school students. The book sale proceeds are the primary resource for the library’s book purchases, an important component of the many services provided to Madison’s wonderfully diverse population, where more than 20 different languages are spoken at home. Madison has recently been deluged with praise, including from the Oregonian’s Education writer, Betsy Hammond, for "registering huge gains in student proficiency" on state exams. Parents and students alike have taken notice. After comparing Madison’s curriculum with neighboring schools, they are excited about a Portland high school that has 16 Advanced Placement courses and offers students the opportunity to become culturally competent citizens of the world. All books are donated by community members and local booksellers, and are still happily being accepted until Friday, January 23rd outside Madison’s Main Office between 7:00am and 5:00pm Monday - Thursday, and 7:00am and 4:00pm on Friday. There is temporary parking a few steps away on the south side of the circular drive. For assistance with large donations, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
