CBC Calgary Reads Big Book Sale 2018

The sale is our way of evening out that imbalance.

People purge their books, we sell them and the funds raised are used year round to support literacy programs, and get free books into the hands of kids who have none. Helping us collect books is great for workplace or community-building.

Donate good quality, gently used adult and children’s books at these locations:
