MAY 11 2021 UPDATE
THE SALE HAS BEEN CANCELLED
For years and years over the long winters in Calgary, I’ve been cheered by looking forward to the 2 huge book sales in May. Last year we had to be patient, and this year one of them is happening!
I contacted Calgary READS a month ago. They were trying to get the sale ready to go for May, and said they’d get in touch with me if they succeeded. They HAVE SUCCEEDED!
Calgary READS Book Sale is
May 28 – June 19, 2021

at the same place as usual, the Calgary Curling Club, 720 3 St. NW, Calgary
“150,000 gently used and carefully sorted books are waiting for you BY APPOINTMENT.
[Book an appointment HERE]
Come to the Sale, or shop from home.“
