Huge Hillsdale Book Sale set for Sunday

Hillsdale residents have donated more than 6,000 books to the benefit Hillsdale Holiday Book Sale to be held this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the old Estby gas station.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit organizations that are members of the Hillsdale Alliance. Member organizations include the neighborhood association, the business and professional association, Hillsdale's three public schools, the library, the farmers market and Hillsdale Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NET).

The books are priced to sell. "Pocket" paperbacks are 50 cents, softcover books are $1, hard-bound books are $2. Oversized or "coffee table" books are $3. Some exceptional books are specially priced.

The Hillsdale Business and Professional Association will also sponsor a chili feed at the sale. School choirs will serenade, and classical guitar virtuoso George Woolf will play.

The gas station is immediately to the east of Baskin Robbins on Capitol Highway.

The Dec. 3 sale follows the successful benefit book sale in July at the gas station. That sale grossed $3700.
