Book fair organizers accepting donations

The Hyde Park Used Book Sale began accepting donations for this year’s event.

Donations of used books can be dropped off at Treasure Island’s basement in a watermelon box left at the foot of the stairs or taken directly to the sorting room if somebody is working.

Donors who need help transporting the books can contact the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference at 773-288-8343 or hpkcc@aol.com and request a pickup.

Treasure Island, 1526 E. 55th St., is donating space and produce boxes for the annual used book sale.

This year’s sale will take place from Oct. 12 to Oct. 14.

Anyone interested in volunteering or in need of a tax receipt can contact Jane Ciacci at 773-419-1384.
