Metro Detroit's Biggest & Best Used Book Sale

DETROIT, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bookstock is back, celebrating 11 years of supporting the need to read. Metro Detroit's largest used book and media sale, where all proceeds benefit literacy and education projects in metropolitan Detroit, will be held Sunday, April 21-28 at Livonia's Laurel Park Place. Detroit Free Press columnist Rochelle Riley and Detroit News columnist Neal Rubin are Honorary Co-Chairs of Bookstock.

Bookstock's Pre-Sale will kick-off on Sunday, April 21 at 8:15 a.m. with a performance by the Larry Callahan and Selected of God Choir, made famous by the Chrysler Superbowl XLV commercial. There is a $20 admission charge for the Pre-Sale only, which runs through 11a.m. and offers savvy shoppers and collectors first crack at Bookstock's treasure trove of bargains. A true book lover's paradise, Bookstock has over 100,000 donated used books, DVDs, CDs, books on tape, magazines and records for sale at bargain basement prices. The sale will continue through Sunday, April 28, running Sundays, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. - 9 p.m.  

This year, Bookstock will feature four days of special sales. Tuesday, April 23, will be Teacher Appreciation Day, where all teachers with valid I.D. will receive 50% off their purchases from 3 – 9 p.m.  Shoppers can buy three books and get the fourth for free during two days of Bookbuster special deals from 3 - 9pm on Wednesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 25. And those who spend $25 or more during Bookbuster days will be entered into a drawing to win a Red Wings jersey signed by the 2011-12 Red Wings. On Bookstock's final day, Sunday, April 28, all books will be sold for half price!

Bookstock has generated over $800,000 for literacy and education programs throughout Oakland County and Detroit over the past ten years.  More than 700 volunteers work together throughout the year to organize and staff the weeklong Bookstock sale. Bookstock has established the Bookstock Scholar Awards, in partnership with Wallside Windows and Gardner White, given to outstanding students at Wayne State University's School of Library Science and Information Technology.  The Bookstock Fund, launched in 2012, provided a $5,000 grant to Amelia Earhart Elementary School in Detroit. 

Bookstock is sponsored by the Oakland Literacy Council, Detroit Jewish News, Schostak Brothers and Company, the Jewish Community Relations Council, and a consortium of Jewish communal non-profit organizations that support education and literacy projects throughout metro Detroit.
