Book sale attracts young and old

Winter’s coming — time to stock up on some reading material

PHOTO SUBMITTED BY LINDA FULLALOVE Some great books for young and old alike will be available for great prices at the 29th annual book sale Oct. 25

A good book brings enjoyment to everyone, whether young or old.

Find your favourite kind of book at the 29th annual used book sale organized by the Parksville Qualicum Club of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUWPQ) on Oct. 25.

With winter soon upon us, now is the time to stock up with books for those long winter evenings.

The sale will be at a new location in the Pavilion at Morningstar Golf Course, 525 Lowry’s Road in Parksville on Oct. 25-26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Book browsers will be able to enjoy the beauty of the golf-course setting and have the opportunity to take refreshments at the restaurant. Buyers can choose from a wide selection of sorted books at bargain prices, mostly one or two dollars each.

Proceeds from the sale help provide financial assistance to local women with their post-secondary education. Last year, CFUWPQ donated $13,000 in scholarships and bursaries.

Once again, the club is relying on the community to come and support the book sale to help meet its fundraising goal for this year.
