The Rotary Club of Nanaimo Used Book Sale is always enormous, but this fall’s event could be the biggest yet.
According to an event press release, the Rotary club is “anticipating its largest sale to date” as its 19th book sale gets underway today (Oct. 13) at Nanaimo North Town Centre. Approximately 75,000 books will be for sale.
The mall supports the club’s cause with dedicated space for the sale as well as space throughout the year for storing and organizing books. During the sale, Rotarians work as cashiers and merchandisers and handle other tasks.
Over the years, the club has raised more than $850,000 through the book sale.
The sale will be held during mall hours Oct. 13-22.
