Your next great reading adventure is waiting for you at the Courtenay Rotary Club’s Book Sale Fundraiser, coming to the Comox Centre Mall – May 6-9.

This popular event raises money that supports community projects – specifically the ongoing renovations to the Courtenay Train Station – and is made possible by many hard working volunteers who gather donated books from a wide variety of sources throughout the year.

Discover a new interest, embark on a travel adventure, or add to your collection of classics for the great price of $2 per book or three books for $5. Books will be available Wednesday to Friday from 9:30 a.m.- 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The selection of available items changes as space allows, so come back often to find more great titles, DVDs, puzzles, games, VHS tapes, records, and collectible books. Don’t miss the popular Bag Day on Saturday, May 9 when you can purchase whatever you can fit into a Canadian Tire bag for just $5.

“Our biggest fundraiser each year is coming up and we are absolutely overwhelmed with the efforts of our volunteers,” says Rotarian Audrey Craig. “We receive incredible support from the Comox Valley community. We are grateful for the lineups of people who come to each sale and help support our projects!”

The money collected is distributed back to the community through the Courtenay Rotary Club which helps to fund the needs of many Comox Valley charities and organizations.
