The Book Sale is On!

Whew! Right under the wire! Just when we thought we might have to pull the plug on this year’s GIANT BOOK SALE, we were made aware that last year’s venue will be available to us…

Donations for the 2018 Friends of the Guelph Public Library book sale will be received beginning Tuesday, August 7.  Donations may be left at any of the library branches whenever the library is open, or delivered directly to the sale site at 69 Huron St. between 2:00 and 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday (no Sunday reception at 69 Huron St.).  Please follow the signage to the specific donation point at the Huron St. building.

Please note that no donations will be accepted in any location on Labour Day Monday, September 3. Last day for donation drop off at ANY location is Wednesday, October 3.

Thank you for your interest and your ongoing generosity.  We look forward to another great sale in October!
