Free to Read Book Sale

Sat, Apr 20 2024, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Guelph Tool Library is hosting the Free to Read Book Sale in celebration of World Book Day on Saturday April 20, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, in the main concourse of the Old Quebec Street Shoppes, featuring over 5000 books for sale!

The sale is in support of the Books for Inmates Program, a program that supports literacy programs in correctional facilities across Southwestern Ontario. One of the challenges for the Books for Inmates Program is to acquire the necessary books for literacy programs. Desired books, such as technical books and books in other languages, are typically not donated. The book sale hopes to sell those books that are frequently donated, such as best sellers and detective stories, and use the proceeds to purchase the desired books.

The collection drive runs from March 1 to April 15. Anyone wishing to donate gently used books can drop them off at one of several locations throughout the city.

  •     The Guelph Tool Library (55 Wyndham St N, Unit T8)
  •     The Habitat for Humanity ReStore (104 Dawson Rd)
  •     All Saints Lutheran Anglican Church (210 Silvercreek Pkwy N, Guelph)
