United Way fundraisers offer bargain books and crafts

  Donna Mollin

Grab a bagful of book and music bargains at this year’s “Book-for-a-Buck/Tune-for-a-Loon” sale at the library on Nov. 5 and 6 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

All proceeds from the sale go to the United Way campus campaign and everything on the sale tables cost only one dollar. This year, in addition to soft and hardcover books, CDs and vinyl, you can shop for videos as well. There’s still time to drop off donations to the sale. Bring your contributions to the library by Monday, Nov. 4. For further information contact Donna Mollin at 721-7802.

With the great bargains at the book sale, you’ll still have cash left over to shop at the UVic Hearts and Hands Craft Fair on Nov. 19 in the University Centre lobby from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Get a head start on those Christmas gifts by checking out the talents of artisans and crafters in the UVic community.

Proceeds from table registration fees and a raffle will also support the campus United Way campaign along with Hill House Transition House. For further information about the craft sale, contact Annette Barath at 721-7316, Lynn McCaughey at 721-6365 or Helen Rezanowich at 721-7378.
