Big Book Sale!

We’ve received notice that there is a Big Book Sale planned at the Senior’s Centre on College Avenue on Friday September 12 and Saturday the 13th.   The sale is on each day from 10AM-4PM.   The email was a little vague on what the sale was for, but I’ll bet it’s to help the folks at the Senior’s Centre.  Besides, it’s books!  So make sure to check it out!
