Jill Reeve’s Favourite Book Sale

Our popular used book sale, to benefit our Scholarship Fund, will be held at
the March General Meeting. We want to sell current books, award winners,

coffee table books, books for which our members will happily spend $5.
Please bring your book donations by 6:45 pm if possible.

Books usually sell quickly so if you want to pick up a book or two for quiet
evening reading, or for your next vacation, come early. Thank you
in advance for your donations and your purchases.
