Calgary Book Sale


Our Volunteers

Our volunteers are the heart of our Book Sale. Our dedicated team of 250+ volunteers, many of whom have supported the Calgary Book Sale for many years, coordinate and run collection, sorting and sale of 100,000+ books over 6 weeks. Their experience, expertise, and commitment has allowed the Calgary Book Sale to be a success for the past 20 years.
