7th Annual Calgary Book Drive & Sale!

Supported by The Calgary Herald, the Annual Calgary Book Drive and Sale is in its 7th year! This initiative aims to support Servants Anonymous and Raise a Reader Day.

Servants Anonymous is a non-profit organization that assists young women 16-29 who have decided to leave prostitution and life on the streets by providing shelter, life skills, recovery skills, education and job experience so they can maintain healthy lifestyles for themselves and their children.

Raise a Reader Day, The Calgary Herald's annual literary initiative aims to foster the love of reading in young people. This is a Canada-wide event to promote the growth of healthy children through the joy of reading.

By bringing a toonie (only $2 folks) to the Crossroads Market on June 12-14 and June 19-21, you can contribute to both these essential and beneficial initiatives to promote healthy living plus find great books of all kinds!
