Through the years, the Friends of the Richmond Library Whale of a Book Sale has evolved into a popular fundraiser eagerly anticipated by readers of all ages. But when the pandemic was declared in March, all such fundraisers were put on hold.
But, following much deliberation, a unique version of the tradition is set to debut.
The first Curbside Book Sale will be held Aug. 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the south end parking lot at the Cambie branch of Richmond Public Library, 11590 Cambie Rd. The sale will feature what Friends of the Richmond Library publicist Pat Ng describes as "fabulous deals of fiction books pre-packaged by genre and author, Chinese books and surprise picks all at $2 a bag.”
There will also be quality children’s and fiction books available at $2 each.
Patrons are asked to bring their own bags or boxes, and the sale will be cash only with all proceeds benefitting Richmond public libraries.
Due to COVID-19, face masks will be required, and all patrons must keep a distance of two metres (six feet) from others. Hand sanitizer will be provided.
$9.99 for 8 slices of classic pizza or a whole pizza (Hawaiian, Pepperoni, Veggie)
