Our Book Trade Counter is currently CLOSED
This page is the best place for updates on the reopening date of the Book Trade Counter.
Re-opening the trade counter is a priority for us, but the logistical and staffing challenges of COVID continue to interrupt our best intentions. We would love to put this pandemic behind us and get back to normal, but for the time being we are unable to resume activity at our trading and selling counter.
Books piling up at home? Read about our Books For Schools Donation Program below.
Books for Schools Donation Program
Our Books For Schools Donation Program is always open and helping to provide much needed funds to our local schools.
How it works:
- You bring in your good quality, gently read books.
- We store them for a few days
- We appraise their value and distribute that among our partner schools for them to purchase books for their classrooms and libraries.
Metered parking is available on Fort Street. There is also a city parkade one block away on View Street (parking for the first hour is free).
If you have more than 1000 books, you may be eligible for a house call. To arrange a house call please call the store (250) 361-4447 and leave a detailed message for the book appraisers.
