Annual book sale in Parksville

Organizers say there are thousands of books to choose from

There is a book for everyone this weekend at the Morningstar Golf Club Pavilion.

It’s the Canadian Federation of University Women Parksville-Qualicum’s annual book sale. The sale runs Friday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the golf club (525 Lowrys Rd., Parksville).

The women have spent the past few days sorting and putting out the books, and Lorna Miller said she would guess they have about 5,000 books this year.

As of Tuesday, there were still boxes of books lining the back wall.

“I’d be surprised if it was less than that,” said Miller, one of the volunteers.

There is everything from children’s books, to young adult novels, to biographies, to do-it-yourself books and coffee table books.

“If you want to know about opera, if you want to know about Pavarotti, non-fiction, literature of the western man, Shakespeare — the complete works of Shakespeare — it just goes on and on to what we’ve got here,” Miller said.

Miller said all of the books have been donated by the community over the past year.

“And it’s going to be the community that’s going to buy them again,” Miller said.

For those who are looking for a bargain, Miller said books range in price from $1 to $5 with some book sets priced at $20.

“The ones released within the last year will probably be $5,” said Miller, adding that most of the books will be $2.

Miller also said that there’s a club picks section with books that the women have recently read and would recommend.

Miller said they will have plastics bags for people to take their books home, but she said people can bring reusable cloth bags since the books can get heavy.
