The Great Big Book Sale is back for another year, beginning Match 21st. But now, organizers are asking the public for donations of gently used Fiction, Non-Fiction and Children’s Books.

The Canadian Federation of University Women St. John’s Great Big Book Sale is held each Spring, and the group says the success of each sale results from the generous support of the public who donate thousands of used books every year and then come to the sale and buy them all back.

Proceeds from the sale go mainly to scholarships and also support other initiatives of CFUW St. John’s.

Sale Days:

March 21, 1:00 – 9:00 pm

March 22, 10:00 am – 9:00 pm

March 23, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm (Half Price Day)

Book Collection:

February 24 – March 12,  11:00 am – 3:00 pm, 7 days a week.

We collect gently-used fiction, non-fiction and children’s books. 

Please Note: We do not accept encyclopedia, magazines, text books, Readers digest books, computer books with publication dates before 2020, VHS and cassette tapes.
