100,000 books will be up for sale this month

Rotary Used Book Sale starts Friday, April 13, at Nanaimo North Town Centre

Organizers of the city’s biggest book sale are busy sorting the selection.

The Nanaimo Rotary Used Book Sale begins Friday, April 13, and runs until April 22 at Nanaimo North Town Centre.

“The 10-day event offers more than 100,000 books in 30 different categories – including fiction, science fiction, children, gardening, cookbooks, biography, history and military, hobbies and travel,” notes an event press release.

The Rotary Club of Nanaimo has raised nearly $1 million over the book sale’s history, with money benefitting local organizations and international causes.

Nanaimo North Town Centre not only hosts the sale but provides space throughout the year for the Rotary Club to store and organize books between sales.

The book sale will take place during mall hours each day.
