Start November with New Books and DVD’s!

The Friends of the Hyde Park Branch will hold its Fall book sale on Friday and Saturday, November 2-3, from 10-3.  Members of the Friends get the best selection – and tasty treats as well! – at the preview reception on November 1 from 6-7:30.  If it has expired, you can renew your membership ($10 for basic level) at the door.  And bring a friend or neighbor who would like to join.

Do you have books in good, saleable condition that you would like to donate?  If so, please prescreen them at home and put into your recycling any books with the following problems: 1) torn bindings, covers, pages; 2) stains or warping from beverage spills; 3) mildew odors; 4) outdated computer and technical manuals and textbooks.  Leave donated books on the bench in the lobby near the elevator. 

Become a more active member!  We welcome volunteers during the week before the sale to sort and arrange the books, and on the sale days to assist us with a variety of tasks.  It is a wonderful opportunity to help the library (proceeds from all Friends fundraisers support programming at the branch) and to meet fellow book-lovers.  If you can help, leave your contact information (name, phone, email) at the circulation desk (617.361.2524) or at
