Trinity College Annual Book Sale
A spectacular Annual Book Sale is held by the Friends of the Library every October in Seeley Hall at Trinity College. Funds raised through the Book Sale support many projects and activities of Trinity's John W. Graham Library. The annual revenue from book sales in recent years has consistently reached or exceeded $120,000, and the 2012 Book Sale yielded $139,000.
The Friends' Book Sale features some 100,000 donated books sorted into 70 academic and popular categories. Prices range from $2 to hundreds of dollars for rarities and other treasures.
Book Sale Donations and Volunteer Opportunities
The Book Sale Committee seeks volunteer help throughout the year, as well as immediately preceding and during the Sale.
How to donate:
Books should be packed in cartons that are not too heavy for our volunteers to lift (i.e., about 1 cu. ft. in size--roughly the size of LCBO or banker's boxes). Boxes should be sealed if they are dropped off at the College.
Books may be dropped off at the underground garage on the east side of the main Trinity College building on Tuesdays, between 9:30am and 3pm: phone 416-978-2522, ext. 2006, and someone will open the garage door for you. If there is no answer, contact the Hall Porter (416-978-2522) or the Library (416-978-2653).
Please note that we are unable to accept discards from school and public libraries or rummage sales, magazines or journals, Reader's Digest condensed books, most encyclopedias, Harlequin Romances, or books in poor physical condition.
Thank you very much for your donations and your interest. We hope to see you at the Sale.
To contact the Friends of the Library for further information or to volunteer, please phone 416-978-6750 and leave a message.
