CFUW St. John’s Great Big Book Sale

If you love books and are looking for the extraordinary, check out CFUW St. John’s Great Big Book Sale, held each spring.  Here you may find anything from a Charles Dickens first edition to the latest best seller, and quite a bit in between.  Here is an example of a gem of a book that one reader found!

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!!  We are most appreciative and we like to believe we are “turning books into scholarships”. We also believe that the Great Big Book Sale is recycling at its best.  

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

Our 2018 sale is scheduled for May 14 – 16 and will be held at the REMax Centre (St. John’s Curling Club), 135 Mayor Avenue, St. John’s.  Sale hours will be as follows:
