Book Drive Reminder

gabd.jpgDon't forget that on Sunday you can bring all your used and unwanted books to Open Books's Great American Book Drive. The drive will take place from 10am-4pm at their office, 213 W. Institute Pl.

If you can't make it downtown this weekend, The House Theatre is offering another chance for you to donate books. Today through Sunday you can bring used science fiction books to one of their shows and you'll get a $10 gift certificate to use on future House Theatre ticket purchases. The Theatre will then turn those books over to Open Books. House Theatre shows take place at the Chopin Theatre at 1543 W. Division St.; call 773-251-2195 for more information.

Are there any plans for another book donation day in the near future?

I haven't heard of one so far, but if you have books you'd like to donate soon, you can contact Open Books directly (312-239-6649 or books[at]open-books[dot]org) and see if they can take what you have.
