The Spring 2018 Calgary Used Book Sales are just around the (snowy) corner!
There is still snow on the ground, but if the used book sales are happening, it must be spring! Two huge book sales offer Calgarians the opportunity to support worthwhile causes. I have attended these for at least 10 years, and always find great deals and unique books.
#1 – May 2-6, 2018 RESET Society book sale at Crossroads Market
RESET (formerly Servants Anonymous Society) is having its 16th Annual Book Drive and Sale on May 2-6, 2018, at the Outpost Tent at Crossroads Market.
Looking for vintage books? This one is my pick for finding vintage treasures! They are in a special enclosed area in the back right corner, very nicely organized.
One Weekend Only!
Wednesday & Thursday, May 2 & 3, from 3pm-8pm
Friday to Sunday, May 4 – 6, from 10am – 5pm
Heading to the Book Sale with Calgary Transit? There is a stop located @ 26 Ave 11 St SE for route 24 and 302. For more information or to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-237-8477. The proceeds from this book sale help RESET provide great supports for vulnerable women and their children.
#2 – May 11-13, 2018 CBC Calgary READS book sale, Calgary Curling Club
The impact of this sale on Calgary’s children is enormous, as it provides help for increasing literacy through proceeds raised by selling huge quantities of joy-filled books for adults and children.
Calgary Reads is committed to working with parents, educators, corporate partners and the community at large to foster a joyful relationship with reading in all children in Calgary and beyond.
Such worthy causes! I hope you’ll join the fun and find some treasures!
