The other day I got a note from my neighbor Barbara, one of the owners of the “Yes We Can” house located at 6th and Irving. A daily landmark for commuters passing through the Inner Sunset, Barbara and her husband, along with many neighbors, host community events at their home, which features a spacious back yard. Coming up in April, they will be hosting their annual “Book Blast,” an opportunity for you to recycle your unwanted books and perhaps find something new to read.
Details are as follows. This is a completely cash-free event, and as someone who has attended before, can be a lot of fun, and a great way to meet people in the Inner Sunset:
We’re now collecting for the Inner Sunset Third Usually-Annual Book Blast. This year, the event will be a full weekend, Saturday/Sunday, April 27 & 28 at the NW corner of Irving & Sixth; Noon until exhaustion.
Feel free to drop books NOW at 1297 Sixth Ave. in our sheltered doorway, in bags/boxes, not too heavy to make my eyes pop out. If necessary, we can pick up your
donations, just call.
We’d love: kids’ books, fiction, dictionaries, books, psychology,
science, cookbooks, travel, maps, books, videos, biographies, books, CDs, DVDs, books, paperbacks, history, and books!
Please note: we canNOT accept text books, encyclopedias or magazines, unfortunately.
This is not a charity event, or a swap and no money will be exchanged…It is our neighborhood’s effort to recycle books.
Leftover books will be donated to the SF Public Library for their
Volunteers *very* welcome (err…needed!) Please call Barbara: 18.104.22.168
