A Virtual Auction with 100% of the funds going to UNICEF
A virtual auction of special books to benefit UNICEF, the well known
non-profit organization helping children in need around the world, will
kick off ILAB's Virtual Celebration of the Book. The auction will start on
Wednesday, May 19, 2004, at 6:00 pm Amsterdam time, (the site of ILAB's
first conference in 1947) and will continue through May 22nd. ILAB members
are proud to support the work of UNICEF (www.unicef.org) as they endeavor
to protect the world's children. A variety of books and prints, donated by
ILAB booksellers, will be up for auction at www.ilab.org throughout the
four day event. Be sure to drop by and check out the possibilities.
Wouldn't it be great to add something to your collection while helping a
child to a better life?
In addition to the virtual auction, the four day event will feature a
virtual book fair running until 10:00 p.m. Amsterdam time May 22nd; a
"Biblio Quiz" where entrants can win prizes by testing their book
knowledge, and live appraisals on Saturday, May 22nd. ILAB will also launch
new features on its website, including educational resources for book
collectors and highlighting its powerful new search engine which searches a
database of over 3 million books, maps, prints and autographs from nearly
2000 booksellers from all over the world.
The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), an organization
of national associations of antiquarian booksellers around the world,
speaks for twenty nations and nearly two thousand leading booksellers bound
by a code of ethics to promote the integrity and professionalism of the
antiquarian book trade worldwide.
