Rotary Club of Chilliwack holding outdoor book sale

Readers who are running out of books during the pandemic have a chance to re-stock their supply

If you’ve been tearing through your book collection during the pandemic and find yourself running out of reading material, the Rotary Club of Chilliwack has a solution.

The club is holding a one-day book sale Aug. 29, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the new Rotary building at 44870 Wolfe Road.

According to a Facebook post, the sale will include “a huge selection of books, DVDs and records with most priced from $1 to $5.”

This event is a precursor to Rotary’s larger annual book sale that typically takes place in October, running over several days at the Chilliwack Mall. If it’s not disrupted by COVID-19, this year’s sale will be the 36th annual.

See the Rotary Outdoor Book Sale Facebook page for more on the upcoming event.
