If you happen to be going to Washington DC (my home town) in the next month, until May 15, then head on over to 1030 17th Street NW to participate in Carpe Librum.
This event was brought to my attention by Robin Crowell, who is the Operations Coordinator for Turning the Page, a DC-based Non-profit. Here is what she says:
Turning the Page works with DC pubic school parents to help them become more active and effective participants in their children’s education. Every spring we hold a large, month long book sale, called Carpe Librum, at a downtown DC location to help fund our year-long programs. This year will be Turning the Page’s 12th annual Carpe Librum and we expect to have over 50,000 books on sale (as well as CDs and DVDs).
Here is an opportunity to buy good books at great prices (most items priced at 1 to 4 dollars) or donate used books for us to sell.
