CBC Calgary Reads Big Book Sale

 The 2017 CBC Calgary Reads Big Book Sale will be held at the Calgary Curling Club  May 12th to May 14th.  The CBC Calgary Reads Big Book Sale is held each year in May. Last year, through the generosity of Calgarians and our amazing volunteers, we received, sorted and sold over 100,000 gently used books and raised over $300,000 for Calgary Reads.

The shifts are four hours (9-1, 1-5, 4-8). Volunteers are required to stand (on concrete) and so sturdy shoes are needed.
