Blackstone Library thanks community


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 despite the unspring-like weather! Thank you to everyone who made the sale possible by donating books. 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.

We are no longer accepting donations at the library. Please look out for future announcements about donation collections for the October Hyde Park Used Book Sale. Proceeds from that sale fund the work of the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference (HPKCC), supporting many great community causes including local schools, parks, and our work at Blackstone Library.

 See you next spring!
