Our beloved semi-annual fundraiser returns to 444 Seymour Street (the former Value Village location downtown) for the fall sale. Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale will be running from Saturday, November 16 to Saturday, November 30.

Generous donations of gently used books, sheet music, vinyl records, DVDs, and CDs have been received and most are available for only $2, making it very affordable for shoppers to stock up on winter reading or find some great Christmas gifts. This semi-annual sale has been wonderfully successful due to its highly organized donations of books and music, and the KSO’s 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.

Volunteers will be gratefully accepting donations at the loading dock on the West side of the building (the parking lot beside The Plaza Hotel) starting Thursday, November 14 until Saturday, November 23. Donors are required to make contact with volunteers at the loading dock when dropping off donations. Volunteers will not accept the following:

  • Dirty/tattered books
  • Magazines
  • Readers Digest
  • Encyclopedias
  • Textbooks
  • VHS
  • Cassette tapes

Shoppers are encouraged to stop in a few times during the sale – as the donations continue to be processed and put out you never know what great find you’ll discover next!

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.
