Brooklyn Public Library


Give Your Books Up for Adoption

Sep 30, 2010 1:52 PM | 0 comments

Books can sneak up on you. One minute you’ve collected just a few; next thing you know, they’ve become like a small family living in your house, taking up valuable space and slowly pushing you out the door. So what do you do? Throw them away? Turn them into book art? How about giving them a new home? 

Come to the Great American Book Drive at Central Library this Saturday, from 10 AM to 3 PM, and bring all those unwanted books with you. Our co-host, Better World Books, will sell them to people all over the world, and Brooklyn Public Library will get a part of every sale. It’s one of those rare situations where everyone wins!

If you fear separation anxiety from your old books, you can pick up new ones at our buck-a-book sale. That money will also support the Library.

There will also be live music from 11 AM to 2 PM by our house band Lost in the Stacks. Kids can enjoy crafts and a temporary tattoo parlor throughout the day as well.

See you, and your books, on Saturday!
