The Used Book Sale is Around the Corner

We hope to see you at the upcoming Used Book sale as a Seller, a Buyer or both!  We are pleased to confirm the details for the 2022 sale.  Please review all the information below and on the Book Sale Portal around selling, buying, and requesting used books.  

By participating in the Used Book sale, you can save money and support the school. Used Book Prices for Buyers tend to be 35% or more off full list price. Used Book proceeds for Sellers tend to be higher than reselling through a traditional retailer

What to do next? First check out the 2022/23 Book lists to see what to Sell and what to Buy.  Remember the Used Book Sale can only sell (intake) texts that remain on the list from this year.

Sellers, please consult the Year / Year Changes list to help with preparing your books for sale. Note the Intake days / times on June 20th / 21st only

Buyers, you have 2 options to purchase books. You can complete an Online Request Form before the sale week and be entered into a Lottery.  The other option is to come in person this year during the sale days/ times on June 23rd / 24th.  Whichever method works for you, book orders will be picked up during June 23rd / 24th only.  Please see the Book Sale portal for further details:
