3 posts in this topic

Just a quick reminder to all that the huge Munich English Book Sale is this coming weekend:

For those not familiar with this annual event, the sale will offer around 15,000 donated English-language books and DVDs at cheap prices. All proceeds go to fund our
humanitarian work in Ilembula, Tanzania. In years past, we've funded projects such as:

- The building of school kitchens with more efficient wood stoves to reduce deforestation and provide the students with a warm meal of porridge.

- Health classes for 1500 students

- The building of school latrines

- Soccer balls with bells and Braille paper for he school for the blind

- The building of an AIDS education center

We're all volunteers and every cent we earn goes to support these projects. You can read about these projects and see pictures at:

Over half our books are priced at 2 Euro or less, so there will be plenty of bargains even on Saturday. You'll find hundreds of children's books as well, sorted by age group.


The English Book Sale is this Friday Oct 13 from 3 to 7pm and Saturday Oct 14 from 11am to 3pm at the Ernst Mach Gymnasium, and the address is:
Jagdfeldring 82 in 85540 Haar, which is a short walk from the Haar S-bahn stop. Signs will guide you there. If you drive, there's a parking lot and free on-street parking.


In our reader's lounge, you can enjoy homemade cake and a cup of coffee or tea while you chat or read. Hope to see you there :-)

Hi Colin, 

thanks for your kind offer to donate books. If you just have a few, just bring them to the book sale on Friday or Saturday. If you have a carload, just let me know.
