We’re going strong with lots of great stuff for everyone!

Our doors are open ALL weekend long so make sure to pop in and visit us on this summery September weekend:

Saturday, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm

Sunday, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

We’re busy re-stocking the tables with more and more goodies for everyone!  Check out this terrific editorial that’s in the most recent issue of The Strand, Victoria University’s student-run newspaper since 1953.  Is that Russian mathematics textbook still up for grabs???

There truly is something for everyone and all different types of readers.  To quote one Vic alumnus:

The most technologically efficient machine that man has ever invented is the book.” 

Come and find your machine!

Opening Day — Hooray!

The line-up began early in the morning and by the time the doors to Old Vic opened to usher in the start of the 28th Annual Victoria College Book Sale, book lovers were patiently waiting all the way down St. Mary’s Street!  Can you spot yourself in any of these shots?

Think all the best stuff is gone? Nope! New stock is put out each and every day of the sale, so you never know what you’ll find when you least expect it!  Check out this happy guy who found more than a couple things for his bookcase at home:

And what about all our phenomenal volunteers:  friends, students, alumni and book lovers alike?  You’d think we’d be exhausted and suffering with tired feet but we’re ready to help you again today, tomorrow, the day after and beyond!  Don’t let Bert and Ernie and the rest of the gang fool you!

See you again soon!

One. More. Day.

The 28th year of the Victoria College Book Sale is almost upon us!

Doors open at 2:00 P.M. sharp tomorrow, Thursday September 19th, and stay open until 8:00 P.M. that night!  Can’t make it on Thursday?  No problem!  The sale continues:

Sunday Sept 22nd, 11am-5pm

New stock is put out throughout the day, each and every day of the sale, so there’s always something new and interesting to catch your eye!  Check out some of the goodies our hard-working volunteers have already set up for Opening Day:

On the main floor of Old Vic in Alumni Hall:

And a new favourite for those who have been part of the sale over the years is our table with “Lin’s Picks”, honouring Lin Taylor’s upbeat spirit, cheerful personality and infallible sense of humour:  you are missed!


Don’t forget to pop into the Specials Room this year — you never know what you’ll find!  We’ve got some older books, some hard-to-find books, journals, art prints, posters, and all kinds of odds & ends.  Sneak a peek below for a preview:

There are many many more subject areas and thousands of books upstairs on the second floor and in the chapel.  Not sure where to find your favourites?  Ask one of our volunteers or pick up a copy of the directory.

We can’t wait to see you on Thursday at 2:00 P.M.!
