Our dedicated group of sorters welcomes your gently used books, CDs, DVDs, and vinyl records. Donations can be placed on a cart in the main lobby of the church during business hours or Sunday mornings until early April.
Guidelines for donations
We value your contributions and greatly appreciate all books that are in saleable condition. Unfortunately, we cannot accept:
How to package your books
We prefer that books be packed carefully in small boxes, such as liquor store or bankers boxes, rather than bags. Books travel best when packed flat. We want to keep them in excellent condition to sell.
If you are dropping off a large donation of many boxes, please contact Kevin Resaul, our property manager, in advance.
Pickup of large donations: We prefer that you bring your donations to the church yourselves. However, if you need help, please contact us to arrange pickup. If possible, pack your books in liquor store boxes or bankers boxes with handles so that our volunteers can safely lift and move them. Books travel best when packed flat.
Book Sale weekend: In early March 2020 we will be looking for volunteers (cashiers, security, refreshments, floaters, etc.) for the weekend of the Book Sale. We will provide a link here in early March 2020 to allow you to volunteer for one or more shifts, and have fun helping out! It’s great to volunteer for a shift, enjoy camaraderie with your neighbours, and help ensure the success of the book sale.
In March 2020, check back here to see if there is a task and time suitable for you. Thanks for helping out!

Washington Black by Esi Edugyan. The latest novel by Scotiabank Giller Prize winning author Edugyan mixes horror with high adventure in a powerful exploration of the burden of freedom in a time of slavery.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. A painfully beautiful debut novel, this is an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.
