Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale Returns For Spring 2022 Edition

April 20, 2022 at 10:34 am  Community, Kamloops

KAMLOOPS, B.C. ­– The Kamloops Symphony’s perennially popular semi-annual fundraiser Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale is returning for the Spring 2022 edition. The biggest and best sale of gently used books, music, and more will run from Saturday, May 7 to Saturday, May 21, operating from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday, and 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sundays. The sale will be back at 444 Seymour Street, nestled in between The Big Little Science Centre and the future home of Nutters.

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 some summer reading. The 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.

For those interested in getting first dibs at the books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records, and sheet music, there will be an exclusive early access event on Friday, May 6. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase items between 7:00 and 9:00 pm, ahead of the public opening the next morning. Only 50 tickets are available, which sell for $25 on Eventbrite or by calling the KSO office at 250-372-5000. In addition to early access to peruse the stock of books, music, and more, sweet treats, coffee, and tea will be provided. This new initiative was introduced in the Fall edition and was tremendously popular with long-time shoppers of the sale.

Donations will be gratefully accepted at 444 Seymour Street from May 4-6, between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Donors are asked to come in the front door, and to be aware that volunteers on-site will not be able to provide any physical assistance with donations.

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.
