Many, many thanks to local author Andrew Snook for donating his May and June royalties to Friends of the Library!
To purchase a copy of Remy's Dilemma, go here:
"I was extremely disheartened to hear about the funding cuts to libraries across Ontario and would like to do what I can to help out libraries in my hometown of Mississauga.
For the remainder of the school year (all of May and June), I will be donating all of my author royalties from online sales of Remy’s Dilemma to the Friends of the Mississauga Library, a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that promotes literacy and extends the programs and services of the Mississauga library system throughout the community."
Have you dreamed of running a little second-hand bookshop but were beaten down by reality? Would you like to indulge your fantasy for a few hours every Saturday morning?
Friends of the Library Mississauga is looking for a bibliophile to help with the second-hand book sale at Central Library, 9-12 on Saturdays. Applicants must be well-read and have a basic knowledge of books. Please ensure you can attend at least 3 Saturday mornings per month, even during the summer.
Duties include sorting donations (requires some lifting), categorising and pricing, shelving (requires a lot of time on your feet), researching valuable books and preparing book displays.
If you’re interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
