Come Find A Book

It's easy at Bookstock's annual sale
set for May 15-22 at Laurel Park.

B

ookstock 2011, Metro
Detroit's largest used book
and media sale, begins on
Sunday, May 15, at Laurel Park Place
in Livonia.
The gospel choir that appeared in
the Chrysler Superbowl commer-
cial with Eminem — Pastor Larry

Choir — will sing beginning at the
8:15 a.m. opening ceremony. Also
taking part will be
Bookstock honorary
co-chairs Rochelle

the Detroit Free Press,
and Detroit News col-
umnist Neal Rubin.
There is a $10 charge
to attend the opening
and pre-sale Sunday
morning.
The free-

begins at noon,
with more
than 100,000
donated
books,
videos, CDs and records, most sell-
ing for $1-$3. Bookstock BookBuster
Sales will be 3-9 p.m. Wednesday and
Thursday, May 18-19. Those who buy
three books will receive a fourth free

On Bookstock's final day, Sunday,
May 22, all books and media will be
50 percent off.
Proceeds from Bookstock support
education and literacy projects in the
Detroit metropolitan area. More than
600 community members volunteer
sort the donations throughout the year
and staff the sale.

Three Bookstock Scholar Awards
will be given to outstanding library
science students at Wayne State
University in Detroit. Bookstock
proceeds will fund one of the $2,000
scholarships. The others are provided
by Bookstock partners Gardner White

After the sale, all unsold books will
be donated to charities and other
nonprofits in the area. Representatives

tions must register

organization's let-
terhead introducing
its representative and
stating its needs.
Any remaining
books will be
taken away by
Salvation Army,
to be distribut-
ed to its stores
and programs.
The volunteers include many
teens and young adults. Max Efros of
Bloomfield Hills, a student at Temple
Israel, selected Bookstock as his mitz-
vah project. He placed book collection
boxes in Temple Israel's lobby and the
temple alerted alerted the congrega-
tion. Max collected more than 2,000
books and plans to work at the sale.
