Haar English Book Sale - October 11 and 12
Dear Friends of the English Book Sale
Yes, it’s Book Sale time again, so you’ll soon have a chance to stock up on English reading matter to while away those long dark winter evenings; we’ll be holding our 2019 English Book Sale on Friday 11th October from 3pm to 7pm and Saturday 12th October from 11am to 3pm.
As always, the Sale will give you an excellent opportunity to buy good quality English books and DVDs inexpensively - and at the same time support our partner communities in Tanzania.
This year's Book Sale will again be held in Ernst-Mach-Gymnasium, Jagdfeldring 82 in 85540 Haar. Both the Book Sale and this high school have partnerships with Ilembula in Tanzania and the school has again kindly offered us the use of its premises for the Sale. The entire event takes place on the ground floor with good access for strollers, wheelchairs etc. There is also good parking, and the school is just a 10-minute walk from Haar S-Bahn station (S4 and S6) - the route will be signposted from the station. For a map showing the school's location, which is close to the Haar tower building on the B304, please see https://goo.gl/maps/ykue1e1w26K2.
There will be thousands of books and DVDs on sale, priced between 50 cents and 5 euros, and you will also have an opportunity to sit down and relax over a cup of coffee or tea and home-made cakes. There will also be a play area for children so that you can browse at leisure.
If you have any books and/or DVDs you would like to donate to the Book Sale, we would ask you to bring them to the main entrance of the Ernst-Mach-Gymnasium between Saturday 21st September and Saturday 5th October.
Please make sure that the books are in English and in desirable sellable condition; please also make a point of keeping to these dates so that we have time to sort and price the books before 11th October.
During school hours please place your donations on the trolley marked Book Sale just inside the main entrance to the School.
Out of school hours please place the books as carefully as possible in the large plastic container (grit box) just to the right of the main entrance doors to the school. The container will be marked Book Sale and will be emptied regularly.
If you have a particularly large donation to bring, please phone Gerlinde or Kirsten (telephone numbers below) to arrange a drop-off time.
The entire proceeds of the Book Sale will be used to promote humanitarian projects in Ilembula (Tanzania) within the scope of the partnership between Haar and Ilembula which was initiated over 30 years ago. The scale of the Book Sale has expanded so rapidly in recent years that we have for organisational reasons taken the step of forming a separate registered charity: Ha-Ile e.V.. If you would like to learn more about the activities connected with this initiative and about other items you can donate for the container which we send twice yearly to Tanzania, you will find further details under www.ilembula.de. We are also on Facebook under Munich English Book Sale.
Please pass on details about the Book Sale to any of your acquaintances who you think might be interested: you will find a flyer as an attachment.
For any further information please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org; alternatively you can call Gerlinde on (089) 46 31 98 or Kirsten on (089) 46 20 32 64.
