Barriere Lions Used Book Sale happening Nov. 6 -7

The Barriere Lions Club Used Book Sale will be happening this weekend. What better time than now to stock up on reading materials for the long winter ahead?

This annual sale of gently used books provides a prime opportunity for avid readers to stop in at the Barriere Lions Hall and browse through a hall full of tables loaded with literature for all ages in the form of paperbacks and hardcover. There are numerous choices for anyone who enjoys reading, and or learning. Best of all the price is just right – .50 cents for paperbacks and $1.00 for hardcover. You’ll also find CDs and numerous magazines.

The Book Sale runs over two days, Friday, Nov. 6, and Saturday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., in the Barriere Lions Hall, at 350 Borthwick Road, in Barriere.

Due to BC Health requirements regarding COVID-19 shoppers will be entering from the main entrance door to the hall on Borthwick Road, and exiting from the side door facing Lilley Road. Shoppers are asked to respect social distancing guidelines, keeping two meters (six feet) away from one another, and to wear a mask while making their selections. Masks, gloves and hand sanitizer will be available at the door.

All of the proceeds raised during the event are donated by the Lions Club to Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach in support of youth and family literacy initiatives in this area.

Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach provides free tutoring, youth camps, the Teddy Bear Picnic, books for all the children at the Breakfast With Santa, Books For Babies, facilitates the Parent Child Mother Goose Program, provides tutors for kids, and they recently made a substantial donation to the Fadear Park StoryWalk.

All funds raised will stay in the community.
