A Good Bargain for Book Lovers in Support of Charity


Here comes a chance to buy books at a bargain and support charity. Large quantity of donated books will be sold at an attractively low price this weekend in support of a good cause to help the needy.

The "Sale of Donated Books", which was very well-received by the public last year, will be held on Saturday and Sunday (February 15 and 16) this year from 10 am to 6 pm at the Hong Kong Central Library Exhibition Gallery and the Sha Tin Town Hall Exhibition Gallery. Various kinds of donated books, including adult and children books, will be sold at $ 5 each for contribution to the Community Chest of Hong Kong. To be environmentally friendly, the public is encouraged to bring their own bags for the books bought.

As part of the activities to promote reading, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Home Affairs Department, 18 District Councils, the Community Chest of Hong Kong, the Hongkong Post and the Agency for Volunteer Service, have jointly organized the Book Donation & Sale Campaign, to encourage the public to donate their books for sale.

For enquiries about the Book Donation & Sale Campaign, please contact Mr Lai at 2921 0221.
