Hyde Park Used Book Sale

Saturday-Sunday-Monday, October 8-9-10
9:00 to 6:00 (Monday 9:00 to 2:00)

The annual Hyde Park Used Book Sale is just around the corner. Please remember to donate your unwanted books in the basement of Treasure Island (tax receipts available upon request), before Oct. 2.

Last year, the book sale had over 50,000 books. Proceeds go to support the programs of the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference. Last year, we spent almost $19,000, giving back to the neighborhood, including $6,000 on area schools, $4,000 on community parks, and $7,000 on neighborhood projects and enhancement grants.

Most books cost $2.00 and under. Hard backs are $2, large paperback (trade size) are $1.00, small paperback (pocket size) are $0.50, and children's books are $0.25. National Geographic Magazines are 10 cents each. We also have a large pile of vinyl records and tapes.

Your support and help is appreciated.
