Book donations for charity sale
Hong Kong people are being invited to help the needy by donating used books or buying valuable old books at an attractive price and support the Book Donation and Sale Campaign 2005.
From now until February 23, readers can donate books to all public libraries (except mobile libraries). The Hong Kong Central Library will accept books until February 27. Adult and children's books on general subjects except magazines, primary and secondary school textbooks, exercise books and audio-visual materials are welcome.
The Book Donation and Sale Campaign is jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Home Affairs Department and 18 District Councils, 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.
Donated books will be on sale on February 26 and 27 (Saturday and Sunday) from 10am to 6pm at the Exhibition Gallery of the Hong Kong Central Library, Boundary Street Sports Centre No.1 (near Flower Market) and Main Arena of Yuen Wo Road Sports Centre (near Shatin Rural Committee Road). All books will be sold at $5 each, with the proceeds donated to The Community Chest of Hong Kong.
