"Books, Brownies and Beans," The Out of the Woods key annual fundraiser is set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Feb. 22, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 2300 East End St. NW, Olympia.

All the proceeds from the sale of used books, DVDs, CDs, coffee, tea, pastries and handicrafts support the shelter. Last year, the event raised slightly more than $9,000, event chairman Mark Swanson said.

He expects some 8,000 books, including a healthy supply of children’s books, to be available at the sale. Admission to the fundraiser is free.

Anyone who wants a sneak preview of the book sale should come to an informal party at the church from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Feb. 21. Admission is on a sliding scale of $10 to $50, which is good for one book, wine and hors d’oeuvres.
