February
Donate used books for charity sale on Feb 21 and 22
***************************************************


Here is a great chance to dispose of unwanted books, to buy valuable old books at an attractive price and to help the needy - so come and join the Book Donation and Sale Campaign 2004.

From now until February 20, members of the public can donate their used books to all public libraries (except mobile libraries). Adult and children's books on general subjects will be accepted. All are welcome except magazines, primary and secondary school textbooks and exercise books.

The Book Donation and Sale Campaign is jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Home Affairs Department, Hong Kong Housing Authority, Hongkong Post, the Community Chest of Hong Kong and the Agency for Volunteer Service. It aims to promote reading and encourage book sharing. All books will be sold at $5 each, with the proceeds donated to the Community Chest of Hong Kong.

Donated books will be on sale on February 21 and 22 (Saturday and Sunday) from 10am to 6pm at the Exhibition Gallery of the Hong Kong Central Library, the Main Arena of the Yuen Wo Road Sports Centre and the Atrium on 5/F of the Tsz Wan Shan Shopping Centre.

Crowd control measures will be implemented in the sales venues. In view of limited space in Tsz Wan Shan Shopping Centre, entry tickets with specific time slots for February 21 and 22 will be available for distribution from 9.30am on those two days respectively. Members of the public are urged to bring their own bags and not to bring any books into the book sales venues.

For enquires about the Book Donation and Sale Campaign, please call 2921 0221.

Ends/Monday, February 9, 2004
