It’s Summer, and so it’s time to stock up on books for the beach and the lake—and help do some good along the way—at the Churchmouse Books’ Summer Splash Book Sale!
You’ll find the usual wide collection of pre-owned books in excellent condition—thousands and thousands of them, on the shelves, on tables, and in the pews, each with its own story to tell.
You can also participate in a silent auction of some particularly valuable books in our collection.
And it doesn’t end there: stick around for sliders, hot dogs, smokies and other treats, share a cup of coffee and a chat with your neighbours.
The Churchmouse Bookshop—which is also open every Saturday, 10am - 1pm—receives good-quality used books from the Greater Victoria community and gives them out to new owners in return for cash donations in support of St. Mary’s charity efforts and partners. Our largest charity partner is the Food Bank at St. John the Divine, on Quadra and Mason. In addition, this year, Churchmouse proceeds will also be used to support a new initiative, the St Mary’s Centre for Community, which seeks to connect people in our wider community wtih one another through arts, literacy and conversation.
So, come and browse the books and enjoy the community. Bring your friends. Bring your children. Bring the dog. Admission is free. Donations welcome!
