I was unable to make the United Way book drive this year. I had heard that the library was purging their “B” section (philosophy and psychology genre). I was wondering what happens to the books that were not purchased. Do they
move to the next sale location or does SFU keep them until the next sale? If SFU keeps them, when is the next sale?
A. From time to time the Library does indeed “weed” its shelves of duplicate material in order to create space, and this year we were working in the B’s. Books that aren’t sold at the UW Book Sale are passed on to other charities or organizations that request them. A small number are retained for next year’s sale. The United Way Burnaby Book Sale takes place every year around the 3rd week of November. For information on SFU’s annual United Way Campaign, see http://www.sfu.ca/unitedway.html
