YA Used Book Sale

We’ve been weeding…

Used books are generally priced at 50 cents for a paperback, and $1 for a hardcover… but we do make deals for bulk purchases and/or based on the condition of the book.

  • All funds collected go back into collection development and/or fun stuff for the Library.

WANTED! Student Organiser/Co-ordinator for ESA’s Own Book Club

ESA’s Own Book Club launched two years ago under the leadership of then Grade 11 student Rebecca Parry.  Rebecca has now graduated and we are looking for one – or more – students to take over the reins.

  • Do you like to talk about what you’re reading? To dig deeper and challenge your world view?
  • Are you interested in meeting a diverse group of really interesting people who love to get together and talk about books?
  • Do you have a sweet tooth?  We serve great treats at book club.

If this sounds like you, send an e-mail to enid.wray@tdsb.on.ca and let’s talk about you taking over the reins of student leadership for the ESA Book Club.
