Re: Hyde Park Used Book Sale

A Hyde Park Tradition Continues!

HPKCC Thanks all volunteers and paid workers, book donors, purchasers, and Treasure Island for one of our most successful sales on the weekend of Columbus Day 2010! Watch for information about the 2011 sale.

To release after the 2010 sale.

About the 2010 sale, per August 2010 release.

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference is proud to present the Hyde Park Used Book Sale, to be held on Columbus Day weekend, October 9-11 in the plaza of the Hyde Park Shopping Center, at 55th and Lake Park. Shopping hours are 9 am-6 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 9 am-4 pm on Monday.

The sale is managed on a voluntary basis by members of the Conference Board of Directors, Conference members, and friends in the community and beyond. The sale offers approximately 30,000 fascinating books donated by community members, in an array of subjects, at low prices to suit every budget. Prices go down even further on Sunday and Monday. On Monday, books will also be available at $4.00 per bag or $5.00 per box.

For information about volunteering in the sorting room or at the sale, call 773 324-0750. Donors who cannot get their books to Treasure Island lower level may also call this number to schedule a pickup. Non-profit organizations interested in picking up free books at the end of the sale may call 773-419-1384 in advance of the sale to make arrangements.

The Conference is deeply grateful to our generous sponsor, Treasure Island Foods, especially Babe Magnus, Hyde Park store manager, and the staff of the Hyde Park store for their support of the sale.

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference was founded in 1949 to attend to the civic needs of the community; work toward an attractive, secure, diverse and caring community; and to promote participation of residents, businesses, institutions and organizations in programs and activities that advance the interests and concerns of the community. It serves the community as a watchdog, independent voice, and clearing house in the community's ongoing conversation and decisions about those matters which affect and define community life.
