February
More than 100,000 books sold on first day of Sale
*************************************************

Overwhelming response was received at the Book Sale Campaign today (February 26).

More than 100,000 books were sold and about 12,800 people participated at the first day of the Sale of Donated books. Sales were held at the Exhibition Gallery of the Hong Kong Central Library (HKCL), Boundary Street Sports Centre No 1 (near the Flower Market) and the Main Arena of the Yuen Wo Road Sports Centre (near Shatin Rural Committee Road).

The Sale of Donated Books continues tomorrow (Sunday) from 10am to 6pm. All books are sold at $5 each. All proceeds will be donated to the Community Chest of Hong Kong. This year, more than 220,000 books were collected through the Book Donation Campaign.

People are urged to bring their own bags and not to bring any books into the book sales venues. Crowd control measures may be implemented at the sales venues.

The Book Donation & 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 of Volunteer Service with an aim to promoting reading, book sharing and helping the needy.
