Fall has arrived and with it more time to curl up by the fireplace and enjoy a good book.
Friends of the Richmond Library is hosting two end-of-the-year book sales in October. These weather-dependent sidewalk sales will be held outside the Cambie library branch at 150–11590 Cambie Road (near the corner of Cambie and No. 5 roads) on Saturday, Oct. 16 and 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“These fabulous sales will feature a wide variety of gently used books ranging from fiction, children’s, Chinese language and many non-fiction categories at incredibly low prices,” shares library spokesperson Pat Ng. “Sales are cash only, with all proceeds to benefit Richmond public libraries.”
Ng is asking all patrons to bring their own bags or boxes, and not to miss out on these events to stock up your favourite reads for this coming winter.
Due to COVID-19, a face mask is recommended. Physical distancing of six feet (two metres) is required. And hand sanitizer will be provided at the checkout station.
