We appreciate your interest in donating books to the book sale—your donation will greatly benefit Victoria University Library. There are some criteria on what our volunteers are able to accept.
What we especially value is hard and soft cover books in all subjects in great condition.
Due to the nature of the booksale, we are unable to accept the following:
- encyclopedia sets
- journals or magazines
- previous Reader’s Digest issues
- discarded library books
- outdated or underlined textbooks
- any musty books as they are not saleable.
- VHS Tapes
How to Pack Boxes
- banker’s boxes and liquor store boxers are preferable so our volunteers can lift them.
- Tuesdays and Wednesday, 12:00–3:00 pm
- books can be delivered to the back door of the Library (71 Queen's Park Crescent East)
Drive north of Queen’s Park Cresent East, past Wellesley and St. Joseph Streets. Turn right into the driveway just before the pedestrian traffic lights, north of St. Joseph Street. Then turn left into the library delivery entrance. Use the intercom to the left of the double doors.
Please contact us if you have any questions about donations.
