What's greener than a Green Book Sale?

April 11, 2013 | Sephora | Comments (1)

In honour of Earth Day, come out the Green Book Sale at Barbara Frum Branch on Thursday, April 18, 2013, from 2:00-4:00 p.m.  There will be LOTS of books and other library materials for sale at a reduced cost.  This is a great way to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!

Also, if you have any trinkets lying around at home that you no longer want, bring it in on the day of the book sale and exchange it for something else.  After all, one person’s trash can be another person’s treasure!  Feel free to leave something behind as long as you take something else home.

Mark it in your calendar!  That’s the Green Book Sale, Thursday, April 18, 2013, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at Barbara Frum Branch.
