Because the traditional two-week format is classified as an event, and therefore not permitted under current pandemic-related public health orders, shoppers will instead be given the opportunity to pre-order a curated bag of books from one of the following categories:

• General Fiction

• Science Fiction

• Mystery

• Young Adult

• Romance

• Home and Garden

Shoppers will be able to pre-order their mixed bag of books online and pick up their order at the former Value Village building, downtown at Seymour Street and Fifth Avenue.

Items will be collected at curbside from May 12 to May 15 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

A curated bag of eight books is $10 and a bag of 20 books is $20.

Donations of gently used books will be accepted at the site from May 12 to May 15 between 10 am and 2 p.m. 

 Pandemic related gathering restrictions prevent volunteers and staff from providing any physical on-site assistance with donations.

The following donations are not being accepted:

• Dirty or tattered books

• Magazines

• Readers’ Digests

• Encyclopedias

• Textbooks

• VHS tapes

• Cassettes

The sale began in 1997 and was the idea of then-KSO board member Barb Corbishley.

After her death, it was renamed Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale in her honour.
