A free book for every child…

The book sale has once again received a generous donation from our anonymous donor, to allow us to give a free children’s book to every child, accompanied by a parent, who visits the sale. We are very grateful for this repeated kindness and generosity.

Donations for the 2018 Friends of the Guelph Public Library book sale may be left at any library branch whenever it is open, or delivered directly to the sale site at 69 Huron St. between 2:00pm and 5:00pm Monday through Saturday (no Sunday reception at 69 Huron St.).  Please do not leave donations at any site when there is no one there to receive them.

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!
