This is Bag Day — all the books you can get in a grocery bag for $7.50! Still nearly 70,000 books to choose from! Come on out and see us and help us support Humane Society of Greater Dayton, Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm, Human Race Theatre Company and the House of Bread Community Kitchen! Hours today are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., admission is free and yes, we have shopping carts!
Not just a mountain of books. It’s a mountain range of book that fills our 4000 sf workshop to bursting. We’re still sorting and packing. And sorting. And packing.
The response last weekend to our call for more books was more than anyone ever expected. We estimate that in all we took in around 14 tons of donations.
And yes, of course, we would still be happy to have more. The more books we have, the more we can sell, the more money we can provide to our four beneficiaries this year. (Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm, House of Bread Community Kitchen, Human Race Theatre Co. and the Humane Society of Greater Dayton.)
So, sure bring ’em in! (Or let us know if you need us to come and help you with them. (937) 999-4491.)
We are ever indebted to Meredith Moss at the Dayton Daily News for writing about us. And an enormous thank you to all who helped and all who donated. We are humbled by your kindness.
This year, the proceeds from our book sale November 13-16 will benefit four Dayton-area nonprofits.
Click on the names of each group to learn more about them.
Between now and November, we’ll post an in-depth profile of each group.
After the sale, proceeds from the sale will be split four ways, with each group receiving equal donations. The more books people contribute, the more help we have with overhead, the more folks who come out to shop, the more we will have to share with these stellar organizations.
We are so very pleased to be putting our collective efforts forth to support the arts, education, environment, animal welfare and the fight to end hunger in our own community.
