On Saturday, June 9, the Okinawa Association of America (OAA)’s Library Committee will have a used book sale to raise funds for the organization’s library. A number of secondhand Japanese books and some English books, LPs, cassette tapes, and VHS tapes will be available at great prices. Highlights include Japanese children’s books, history books, and older editions. (Note: Most of the books are not Okinawa-focused)

There will also be snacks for sale including baked goods (while supplies last).

Development for the OAA Charles M. and Yoshiko Kamiya Library began in 2001. It has since become the only one of its kind in the greater Los Angeles area, hosting a rare collection of Japanese and English language materials focusing on the Okinawan culture, history, and diaspora. The space is also used for the organization’s weekly computer classes for senior citizens. Access to the library and computer classes are benefits of the OAA’s annual membership.

OAA Librarian Monica Solis and a small group of volunteers are leading the fundraising efforts for much-needed renovations and repairs. Their weekly activities include organizing the collection, cleaning and repairing books and LPs, and building a library database.

The rummage sale will take place on June 9, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the OAA Center’s parking lot. The OAA Center is located at 16500 S. Western Ave., Gardena 90247. All sales are final (no refunds). For more information, please contact the OAA: 310-532-1929,

All sales are final (no refunds).
