Did you miss the Giant Book Sale as much as we did?
October just doesn’t seem right without it!
Book sale profits have grown every year for the past 14. After expenses, most of the revenue is invested in the Guelph Community Foundation with the intention that when the City finally breaks ground on the new main library the Friends of the Library will make a substantial gift to the Library.
Presently, the investment totals nearly $900,000. Had the 2020 book sale taken place, there is little doubt we could have put it over $1,000,000! What an accomplishment that would have been in this sad year!
If you are one who reviews you charitable givings at this time of the year with a view to your year-end tax situation, please consider donating money you would have spent at the Book Sale, to the Friends of the Guelph Public library, to be added to the investment.
It works best for us if you make your donation through Canada Helps. You will receive a tax receipt immediately.
Covid willing, the Giant Book Sale will be back next year. In the meantime, please consider this alternative.
