Charities will split $4,710 from the News Leader Pictorial's annual Huge Book Sale
Saturday's grand total was a cool $4,710.90 from the Cowichan News Leader Pictorial's annual autumn Huge Book Sale, helping local charities, publisher Bill Macadam and his staff say.
The bargain-loaded title-fest, under sunny skies, drew hundreds of bookworms of all ages to the former NAPA Auto Parts store where dedicated volunteers and staff spent weeks sifting titles into various sections.
Proceeds will help valley food banks, seniors and others.
Cash donations to local charities are welcome year round at the Leader, during business hours at 5380 Trans-Canada Highway, south of the silver bridge between The Brick and Buckerfield's.
