“We would like to thank all the people in the community for generously donating their books, all the people who attended the event and lastly all the volunteers who worked extremely hard for four weeks to bring it all together,” said Judith Dinwoodie, who organised the event.

The money will go towards the day-to-day running of the centre, which is a vital hub for the people of Tsawwassen.

As well as all the books, there was a huge collection of jigsaw puzzles, CDs and DVDs that proved to be extremely popular.

It’s estimated approximately 20,000 books were donated this year.
