Our Fall 2020 Book Sale

Dear Friends,

It is with regret that we announce that the autumn 2020 Victoria College Book Sale will not be taking place.

This is in compliance with UT and Victoria College guidelines which discourage the assembly of large groups on campus during this Covid 19 pandemic.

As a successful sale such as ours is predicated on crowds of book lovers in Old VIC shopping freely to their heart’s content, you can see the problem.

Volunteers have already gathered and prepared a wealth of materials which will keep, as we hope for better days ahead. We have set the dates for the 2021 September sale, and are looking into the possibility of some sort of late winter / early spring book event, about which more later.

In the meantime, while book pick ups and deliveries are not possible at the moment, due to the campus shutdown, volunteers do plan to resume activities such as this when the all clear is given.

We will update you as we gather further information.

Many thanks, as always, for your amazing support. It will certainly be wonderful to see all of you when it is possible.

I send along my best wishes for your continued good health and happy hearts.

Chair of the Victoria College Book Sale

Over and Out!

The 28th Annual Victoria College Book Sale is officially over!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made this year’s sale a success:

to the Friends who come in year round to sort and price donations….

…to the volunteers and students who help get everything set up before the sale…

…to everyone who helps out in so many different ways during the sale…

…and to those who helped out yet again at the end of the sale…

And, of course, to all you book-lovers who came out and bought a box or a bag or a handful of books – thank you!  None of this would be possible without the efforts of so many people contributing their time and energy (and donated books, vinyl, DVD’s, CD’s, etc.) each and every year.


Thank you for showing such love and support for the Victoria University Library!

See you all again next year!
