DETROIT'S BIGGEST USED BOOK & MEDIA SALE:
MAY 15-22, 2016
LAUREL PARK PLACE • LIVONIA, MI
There is an awesome local Michigan community service project, called Bookstock. It's an opportunity to purchase used books and media at a very low price. Bookstock begins this Sunday with a pre-sale event that cost $20. The $20 allows you to gain early access to the sale before the crowds. The pre-sale is from 8:15 am-11:00 am! The general admission beginning at 11am is free for all, You don't want to miss this annual event, and it's all for charity!
Bookstock is an chance for you to support local education and literacy programs in the Metro Detroit area. Personally, I always jump at the chance to do so. I believe in the importance of literacy for children and adults. Spending some money filling out my library is a fun and easy way to show your support.
In addition to the sale, Bookstock features an wonderful opportunity for local fourth grade kids called the B.E.S.T. AWARDS. The kids are given a topic to write about and they submit their essays to the contest. They have the opportunity to win gift cards for themselves, their teacher, and their school! That's just amazing! The school and the teacher connected to the winners will get some money to use in the school.
Curious about how the proceeds from the Bookstock sale are used? Check out the Bookstock Fund page to find out how the money is used within the community!
I know lots of book nerds that are looking to get their series collections completed, same as me. Get out there, support literacy and...buy more books! It should be noted that I found lots of brand new hardcover books (seriously - they don't even look like they were opened once) for $3-$4!
