Too many books?

Here’s your opportunity to share your much treasured books with others, and at the same time, support your local museum.

Funds from the book sale go toward providing quality school and public programming, while keeping the costs low.

The museum looks forward to another stupendous book sale this year, and donations of good quality paperbacks and hardcover books are what make this fundraiser a success.

“We can always use more,” organizers say. “We want this to be a gigantic treasure trove of books for readers of all kinds.”

Donations can be made at the museum’s back door off 4th Ave now until Friday, March 1 during regular museum hours:  noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday—Sunday.

From children’s books, to Canadiana, to history, to mystery; all books, including old maps and charts are welcome, but the museum cannot accept encyclopedias, school texts, Reader’s Digest or magazines.

Call 250-287-3103 for information.

Books will go on sale Saturday, March 2 and Sunday, March 3.
