This Sunday, March 16th, 3–6 PM, join current CSB members at Word Up Community Bookshop for an exclusive first pick at a huge selection of used books during this very special event. Entertainment and light refreshments—courtesy of Mambi Restaurant and Santos Catering—will be provided.
The Word Up CSB (Community Supported Bookshop) is a bookshop member program modeled on neighborhood CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), which help local farmers sustain their operations. Check out the full details on our CSB page.
Not a CSB member yet? You can join at the event:
A Basic Share is $20. When you join, you receive a hand-silkscreened tote bag, 6 wooden coins redeemable for used books, and special member-only opportunities. (Click HERE to become a Basic CSB Member.)
A Continuing CSB Membership is $5/month. Once you join, you receive a wooden token per month redeemable for used books, and special member-only opportunities. (Click HERE to become a Continuing CSB Member.)
A School Share is $50 and is an option for any school or educational organization. Every student in your class gets a wooden nickel, and the teacher gets the tote bag. (To become a School CSB Member—or to sponsor a School Share for a classroom that is not your own—email email@example.com.)
Join hundreds of your neighbors who have joined since we launched the program in December 2011. (An article about the program launch was published in DNAinfo.)
