Attention book lovers! Don’t miss our fourth annual ‘Toonie Book Sale’ on Saturday, November 21st from 10 am to 4 pm at 280 Wilson Street in Appleton. All proceeds in support of the Community Ascent Network.

Fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and classics, hardcover and paperback, all kinds of nearly new books will be available for a donation of just a ‘toonie’ each. A great opportunity to stock up for the long winter ahead, while supporting a worthy cause!

All proceeds from the book sale will go towards providing secondary school education for the youth of Pinan, Ecuador. Community Ascent Network is a non-profit organization founded by local resident Simon Cretien, who has undertaken to help this remote Indigenous community fulfill their dream of having a high school in their community.  Learn more about this project at

Do you have books you’d like to contribute to help this cause? We’re accepting book donations – contemporary, classics, children’s – as long as they’re in very good condition. You can drop books off at the address above any time before Thursday, Nov. 19.
