Book Drive – benefiting Calgary Reads Big Book Sale and ATU 583 Support Group

The A.T.U Local 583 Women’s Committee is participating in the CBC- Calgary Reads Big Book Sale. We are collecting gently used books for all ages (children, teens and adults) These books get donated to Calgary Reads Big Book Sale held on May 10, 11, 12, 2018 @ Calgary Curling Club. Funds raised are used year round to support literacy programs, and to get free books into the hands of kids, teens, adults who do not have access to them.

It has also come to our attention that the Support Group has a very small, limited supply of books for their book shelves at the garages as well so our intention is to share the donations with them.

Boxes will be placed at Anderson Garage, Spring Gardens Garage and Victoria Park Garage, they will be clearly labeled. A member from the Women’s Committee will empty it daily. Renee Dunn will watch over SG and empty it at 20:00. Cheryl Lundvall will watch over VP and empty it at 10:00am and Sharon Anderson will be watching over Anderson Garage and will empty it at 09:30 daily.

We will also have a box available at the Union office where books can be dropped off during office hours (8 a.m to 4 p.m weekdays)

Please note we CANNOT accept: magazines, encyclopedias, dictionaries, VHS/video/cassette tapes or textbooks.

This is a great way to give back while also clearing some space!
