Lincoln Property Company donated more than 2,200 used books to Turning the Page, a nonprofit organization which supports the public schools in Washington, D.C.  The books were collected during a March book drive in partnership with the tenants of area buildings managed by Lincoln Property Company.  They will be sold at Turning the Page’s annual used book sale, Carpe Librum, which runs from April 16 – May 3.

Brandon Ernst, Executive Vice President responsible for the oversight of the Lincoln’s property services group in the mid-Atlantic region, said, “We’re pleased to be able to make a difference in the local community, and supporting Washington, D.C.’s public schools through donations is a simple, straightforward way to do that.  Our employees and the tenants in our buildings were glad to have the opportunity to give their used books to a worthy cause.”

According to Turning the Page’s website, Carpe Librum is the District’s largest book sale, with more than 40,000 books, DVDs and CDs expected to be sold this year.  Hours are Monday through Friday 10am – 7:30pm, Saturday 10am – 6pm, and Sunday 11am – 5pm.  The first week of the event, doors will be open every day at 8:30am.  The store will be at 1030 17th St NW in Washington, D.C.  For more information, visit www.turningthepage.org
