KAMLOOPS, B.C. – The Kamloops Symphony’s perennially popular semi-annual fundraiser is back. After a smaller scale pop-up version in August in lieu of the spring sale, Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale is returning to full size for the fall edition. The sale is once again being held at 444 Seymour Street (the former Value Village location downtown), and will be running from Saturday, November 14 to Saturday, November 28, 10:00 am-5:00 pm Mondays through Saturdays and 1:00-5:00pm on Sundays.
Large quantities of generously donated gently used books, sheet music, vinyl records, DVDs, and CDs have been received and most are available for only $2, making it very affordable for shoppers to stock up on winter reading or to find some great Christmas gifts. This semi-annual sale has been wonderfully successful due to its highly organized donations of books and music and the KSO’s team of dedicated volunteers. All money raised by the sale goes towards the Kamloops Symphony’s operating expenses, which include everything from concert productions to educational programs.
Donations will be gratefully accepted at 444 Seymour Street from October 26-30, between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. COVID restrictions prevent volunteers and staff from providing any physical on-site assistance with donations, and no donations can be accepted during the sale itself.
Running consistently since 1997, the sale was spearheaded by Barb Corbishley who was one of the KSO’s board members at the time. After her unfortunate passing, it was named Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale in her honour.
