The Mississippi Mills Public Library and the Mississippi Mills Youth Centre are holding a Big Bargain Book Sale on October 21 and 22 and we need your help! 

Books can be dropped off at the site of the book sale – 430 Ottawa Street (far end of the Rexall Mall) Saturday, October 14th from 10 am- 4 pm 

We are looking for a few good books! 

Please check your shelves and look under the bed for those books that you know you won’t read again!   Tell all of your friends.   If everyone can donate even a few books you will help us to raise funds for youth centre programming and Pakenham Library Branch furnishings.  Last year we were very short of good children’s picture and chapter books – donations would be welcome.  CDs and DVDs are also welcome. 

We are also looking for sponsors! 

We have two corporate sponsors – the Almonte Market Square and Metroland Media.    Would your company also consider sponsoring the book sale?  For a $50 donation (or more if you wish!) you can sponsor a table of books in a specific genre or have your company logo displayed on the wall as a corporate sponsor.   If you are interested, please contact Judith Marsh at 

We are also looking for volunteers! 

We need volunteers on the following days: 

  • October 14 (book donations)
  • October 19 and 20 (set up)
  • October 21 and 22 (book sale)
  • October 23 and 24 for clean up!

 If you are able to volunteer, please email 

We are also looking for shoppers! 

Please come to our book sale on October 21 and 22.   Tables will be constantly refreshed with new books.  Great opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping and you will be helping out two local organizations.
