Courtenay Rotary Club annual book sale

Courtenay Rotary's annual book sale is early November.

Once again the  Courtenay Rotary Club’s  annual book sale will be  a great event in early November, with books, CDs, DVDs and puzzles coming in by the boxload.

From fiction to biographies, reference books and history, there’s an armload of books or more to suit any taste for the casual or avid reader, not to mention music and movies.

The sale runs every day from Nov. 5 through 10 inclusive from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Comox Centre Mall. Items are priced at $3 for hard cover and coffee table books, $2 for regular paperbacks, $1 for four romance books, four small paperbacks or four children’s books, and $1 for two puzzles, two CDs or two DVDs.

All monies raised go towards cancer care and community projects on Vancouver Island.

Some of last year’s recipients include Jeneece Place, a residence for those receiving care in Victoria, Wheels for Wellness who provide transportation for patients to Victoria, the Chemo Room at St. Joseph’s Hospital and the Vancouver Island Cancer Lodge.

Over 8,000 books have been donated so far, however more are needed to meet the sales goal this year. If you wish to make a donation, watch for newspaper ads or listen to The Eagle 97.3 for Book Bin locations. Also, look for the blue Books For The Cure signs in participating shop windows.

Phone 338-5428 for directions to the nearest drop location or if you need someone to pick up a donation from your home.
