SAVE THE DATES: IT IS BOOK SALE TIME!
So many books, so much time! Yes, now you can shop the book sale on two days! Saturday, April 26 from 12-6pm and Sunday, April 27 from 12-5pm.
This year's book sale is bigger and better than ever and we want to be sure everyone has the opportunity to come by and stock up. All hardcover books are $2 and all paperbacks are $1 so bring your shopping bags and your friends and have a blast!
We will have LGBT and non-LGBT books of all genres, some videos and music, and even a few book cases for sale. Until we run out, each purchase comes with a free shirt from our inventory.
We will have our regular open hours as well, so plan on hanging around with us for a bit! We would be thrilled to show you the new space if you haven't seen it yet!
Free Rapid HIV Testing
Chicago House has generously offered to join us on Saturday April 26th from 12pm-6pm to provide our book sale attendees an opportunity to receive a free rapid HIV test.
In addition to testing, Chicago House has also given Gerber/Hart condoms, dental dams, and informational materials that are freely available to any visitors who joins us during our weekly open hours. These include Thursdays from 6pm-9pm and Saturdays from 12pm-6pm. Thank you so much, Chicago House!
