The grand opening of our used bookstore was held on June 1, 2016, and we had a lot of people come out to help us celebrate! Mitch and Tammy Vik from K-Max - who donated their used book inventory to LQS - came to cut the cake AND the ribbon; Mayor Bob Simpson arrived on his bike (it was during Bike to Work Week, after all) to issue congratulations; and all of our Board were present to welcome guests and sell a few books!
The bookstore is now officially open from Tuesdays to Fridays, 10-4. We are accepting gently used books in most categories. Everyone is welcome!
We are happy to announce the opening of our "new" Used Bookstore. Housed within Literacy Quesnel's new space (same building, but street front so it's easier to get to us) we are open for business from Tuesday - Friday 10am - 2pm. K-Max Video & Games very generously donated their entire collection so we could continue to offer this great service to the community. Come and in say hello and browse our books! We are going to honour the credit system in place by K-Max so if you have book credits you can still use them. We accept paper back, adult fiction. All books are $2 each. Here are some photos of the renovations..
Family Literacy Day is January 27 and we are celebrating in Quesnel by offering you some free family fun at the Museum.
