Volunteers have been hard at work, gathering donated books in preparation for the huge Courtenay Rotary Club Book Sale Fundraiser coming to Comox Mall Nov. 4-7. There you’ll find books in a wide a variety of genres as well as DVDs, puzzles, VHS tapes, games, records and collectible books.
“This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we receive incredible donations from the Comox Valley community,” says Rotary co-chair Audrey Craig. “It’s very encouraging to see the lineups of people who come to each sale in support of our projects.”
The sale will be happening 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, and Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Inventory will be changing daily so plan to come more than once. The prices are great at just $2 per book or three books for $5, making it easy to stock up on your winter reading list or add to your collections. The deal gets even better on Saturday when you can pick up a Canadian Tire bag at the door and fill it up for just $7. The money collected will support ongoing renovations to the Courtenay Train Station and other community projects.
