If you live in Centertown and you are a reader you don’t want to miss the Elgin Street Public School Book Sale.
I’m not sure if it’s the neighbourhood, the families who go to the school or just dumb luck but the selection is amazing. Not only is it well laid out and easy to peruse but the books are set out alphabetically and by genre meaning someone took some serious time to sort them. I’ve been to many book sales that are less than great so I make this one a priority every year and stock up on my summer reading. Sure the prices aren’t the cheapest out there but all the money raised goes to the school. I usually go in with a list of new titles I would like to read and come out with a bag full of books I couldn’t resist.
So if you are in Centretown this weekend make sure you stop by the Elgin Street Public School Book Sale you won’t be disappointed.
