To the Editor:
We would like to express a heartfelt thank-you to the Hyde Park-Kenwood community for making the Spring Book Sale to Benefit Blackstone Library a success. The community showed its love of Blackstone, books, and great bargains! Thank you to all the volunteers who sorted, packed, moved boxes, counted books, and served customers. Thank-you to the students from Kenwood Academy for their invaluable help. A special thank-you to the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference (HPKCC) for continuing to share their expertise in operating a book sale.
We are no longer accepting books at the library. Please save your donations for the Hyde Park Used Book Sale in October in the Treasure Island courtyard on 55thStreet. Proceeds from that sale fund the work of HPKCC, supporting many great community causes including local schools, parks, and our work at Blackstone Library. See you next spring!
