The sorters are now ready to welcome your gently used books, DVDs, CDs, and records for Fairlawn’s Annual Book Sale, April 25th – 27th.
Location: Donations may be placed on a cart in the main lobby until early April.
What we can accept: We value your contributions and greatly appreciate all books that are in saleable condition – clean, not musty smelling, mouldy or ripped. No musty or mouldy items please (they belong in your municipal recycling bin.)
What NOT to bring: Unfortunately, we cannot accept atlases, dictionaries, encyclopedias, magazines, Reader’s Digest condensed books, textbooks, cassettes, videotapes, or musty items.
How to package your books: Please pack books carefully in boxes rather than plastic grocery bags to ensure pages and covers remain flat.
Let us know: If you are dropping off a large donation, contact Kevin Resaul our property manager in advance at ac.de1550446805tinue1550446805uneva1550446805nwalr1550446805iaf@n1550446805ivek1550446805.
How to arrange pickup of large donations: We prefer if you can drop off the donations at Fairlawn. However, if you need assistance for neighbourhood pickup of a large number of books,
please click here — fairlawnchurch.ca/pickup .
We only accept donations packed in
LCBO sized boxes or bankers’ boxes with handles so that our volunteers can safely lift and move them. Books travel best when packed flat.
Full Disclosure by Beverley McLachlin. From the former Chief Justice of Canada comes a riveting thriller starring Jilly Truitt, a rising, young defense attorney faced with a case that hits close to home. A searing look at what justice means in the courts and on the streets, Full Disclosure is perfect for fans of Kathy Reichs, Louise Penny, and Lisa Scottoline. Simon & Schuster
Why Young Men – Rage, Race and the Crisis of Identity by Jamil Jivani. Powerfully moving and refreshingly clear-eyed, Why Young Men is a brilliant exploration of race, class, hopelessness, and why all too many young men turn to radicalization and violence. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about solving one of the most important problems of our day. Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and Political Tribes.
We will be looking for volunteers for the Book Sale later in the spring. Sign up for one or more shifts, and have fun helping out! It’s fun to volunteer for a shift, enjoy camaraderie with your neighbours, and help ensure the success of the book sale. We will notify you later to check out the list of positions needed and see if there is a task and time suitable for you. Thanks for helping out!
