MSO's Giant Used Book Sale Celebrates 20 Years


September 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the MSO’s annual Giant Used Book Sale, a vital fundraiser for the orchestra. Second only to the amount of funding provided by grants from civic and arts council organizations, the MSO’s annual Giant Used Book Sale generates revenue that is used to present and support each concert season, including the opportunity to perform within the Living Art Centre’s Hammerson Hall, a world-class performing arts facility. 

September’s 20th anniversary of the annual Giant Used Book Sale will feature 60,000 items with literary genres ranging from Art to Science Fiction and everything in between. DVDs, CDs and vinyl records are available for purchase and are popular with collectors who travel from as far away as Kingston, ON to find rare gems to add to their collection. 

The Annual Giant Used Book Sale will take place at the Sheridan Centre on Thursday, September 17 (5pm-9pm); Friday, September 18 (10am-8pm); Saturday, September 19 (10am-5pm); and Sunday, September 20 (11am-3pm). For information on how to donate items and to arrange for pick-up, please call the Book Sale Hotline at: 647-866-7253, or email:
