bookstock.

Standard

spent a late afternoon 

browsing through this collection of

used books of all sorts

went home with unexpected treasures

and things to look forward to

kind of like woodstock

but without

the mud, tie dye, or music

just lots of good words.

The Bookstock Fund was created from the revenue of each year’s Bookstock sale and donations. Focused on enhancing literacy throughout Detroit and the metropolitan area, each year the Fund looks for community partners doing inspiring and life-changing work on the individual, family, and organizational level.
