This is an update on the CBC Calgary READS Big Book Sale. They had hoped to hold the sale in September, but will now have to postpone it until next year. They are in great need of support, as their website says…
We currently have multiple, no contact, volunteer opportunities such as Porch Pick Ups, Delivery of Book Bags, Little Free Library fill ups and Community Book Drops. If you have an interest in participating, please email us at email@example.com for more details.
The health, safety and well-being of our volunteers, employees and customers is our top priority and we are following the lead of Canadian public health authorities during this challenging time. Due to the current challenges of COVID-19, our Big Book Sale is postponed. We are planning to hold the Big Book Sale next year… as soon as we know more, you will too. Your willingness to support us with your time and energy is deeply appreciated. If you have any questions please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, as I posted in May, RESET Society postponed their book sale to next year, but you can still give some needed support here.
“We have made the decision to postpone the 18th Annual Book Drive & Sale. We are truly sorry that the Book Drive & Sale will not be able to move forward in the spring as in previous years, but we are feeling excited about the possibilities for this event next year.
This is an extremely important fundraiser for our agency as it provides over 12% of our revenue and we thank you for your considering supporting RESET Society in other ways during this time: https://resetcalgary.ca/how-you-can-help/;
And just a note…if you are looking for brick-and-mortar used book stores….
My two favorites are back in business! I have visited Fair’s Fair and Better Books and Bibles in the past month, and I know they would love all the business they can get. Treat yourself!
I hope that you are well and safe. We will get through this, and I believe there will be good things that result from this pandemic–let’s watch and see. God bless you!
I leave you with a photo from my old, old Junior Instructor that always makes me smile…
