W&CF News

Women and Children First's annual used book sale and inventory are coming up next month and they're asking for help from volunteers to get both done successfully. The used book sale will be on Saturday and Sunday, August 1st and 2nd, and the inventory will occur on the following day, Monday, August 3rd. The store will offer a gift certificate to those who help and, I'd imagine, you'd get first crack at the books on either of the sale days. Shifts for the book sale are 8am-1pm and 1pm-6pm; shifts for the inventory are 8:30am-12:30pm and 1pm-6pm. If you're interested, email the store at wcfbooks[at]gmail[dot]com or call them at 773-769-9299.

In other news, here's your chance to contribute to Chicago history. The Chicago Area Women's History Council is recording the store's history and an archive has already been started at Loyola. If you have any memorabilia from the store and their many events - photos, program schedules, newspaper articles, video footage, etc. - and would like to donate it to the archive, bring it in or email it to the above address.
