Amazing Books and Records is running a series of book fairs to support local schools. The upcoming events will support Community Day School, Hillel Academy of Pittsburgh, Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Colfax K-8.

The store will give each school 15% of in-store purchases from “people who say they're there to support the school,” and 10% of all online sales of new books, “including those of non-school supporters,” during each book fair, according to Amazing Books’ owner Eric Ackland.

Customers will receive about 7% off on all new books purchased, Ackland added. And, as always with used book purchases in-store, “they'll get a free used book or record priced up to $10 with every three that they purchase.”

Dates for the book fairs are Nov. 7-9 for Yeshiva; Nov. 10-13 for Hillel Academy; Nov. 14-16 for Community Day School; and (tentatively) Dec. 5-8 for Colfax, Ackland said.

Amazing Books is located at 5858 Forbes Ave. in Squirrel Hill and 939 Liberty Ave. downtown.

The store’s website is amazingbooksandrecords.com.
