Our perennially popular semi-annual fundraiser Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale is getting a new home for the Fall 2023 edition. The biggest and best sale of gently used books, music, and more will be held in St. Andrew’s on the Square (159 Seymour Street), running from Sunday, November 12 to Saturday, November 25. The sale will be open 12:00-6:00 pm Sunday to Friday, and 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturday, with special hours on Monday, November 13 of 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Once again, we have received large quantities of generously donated gently used books, sheet music, vinyl records, DVDs and CDs, and most are available for only $2 making it very affordable for shoppers to stock up on some winter reading. The semi-annual sale has been wonderfully successful due to its highly organized donations of books and music and the our team of dedicated volunteers. All money raised by the sale goes towards the Kamloops Symphony’s operating expenses, which include everything from concert productions to educational programs.

Donations will be gratefully accepted at St. Andrew’s on the Square from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Monday & Tuesday, November 13 & 14. Sales personnel will be outside the front door to take donations on those days. For a full list of what can and cannot be accepted, please go to KamloopsSymphony.com/barbs-book-sale. Remember, we do not accept:

  • Encyclopedias

Running consistently since 1997, the sale was spearheaded by Barb Corbishley who was one of the KSO’s board members at the time. After her unfortunate passing, it was named Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale in her honour.
