Book sale fundraiser October 24-25th

We are having a book sale to raise funds to support Books Beyond Bars programming!

With the help of our supporters (thank you!) we have received enough donations from this summer’s book drive to be able to have a 2-day book sale in the community booth at Scotia Square mall, Wednesday, Oct 24th and Thurs Oct 25th, 9-5:00 pm.

We will have a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction, arranged into sections for easy shopping.

All funds raised from the book sale will be used for programming costs. Thank you for your support!
