Join us for the EGPL Annual Giant Used Book Sale!

It’s that great time of year again, our Giant Used Book Sale. Throughout the year, our Library collects donated books from members of the community, and on October 26th and 27th we fill the Holland Landing Community Centre’s gym with books that need a new home. The event is supported and run by the East Gwillimbury Public Library Board and the Friends of the East Gwillimbury Public Library. All proceeds will go to support Library services and programs.

Curious? There will be silent auctions, special Library programs, and of course, an incredible amount of books for sale. We hope to see you there!

Please bring your own bags. Cash only. Silent Auction.
