We are very happy to announce our first ever Book sale on Saturday May 6 from 9 am to 4 pm. You can find us in the basement of Marda Loop Church.
Besides great books at great prices we are also offering free child care, a chance to win our eclectic door prize, some refreshments, deals and even free stuff!
All of the proceeds will be going to the CanLearn Society, A local charity that focuses on creating, using and sharing knowledge to remove learning barriers and support life long learning; And to a literacy initiative in Ghana. This registered charity maintains a public library, provides scholarships and builds computer labs for high schools in Ghana.
We are all so excited to be hosting and organizing this event for local and third world literacy, and for a chance to meet our neighbours and socialize with friends.
