Used Book Sale

The ACC Library is having a HUGE used book sale to help clear out some of our DISCARDED inventory.  The sale will run the course of the next couple weeks.

We have tonnes of classic Fiction, High interest Non-Fiction and even Easy reading books that will be great to add to home libraries and help make reading a staple at home.  

Students can take home books for a QUARTER each — That’s eight for only a twoonie!  

Also, reading is a great way to pass the March break, and all proceeds will go to the library fund.  Thanks for your support!
