Used book sale begins this Friday at Memorial Hall
The Blyth Repository of History’s used book sale will take over Blyth Memorial Hall this weekend, starting Friday night.
Running 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 31, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 1 and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 2, the sale is the spiritual successor to the annual book sale previously held by the Blyth Festival.
The proceeds will go to support the Blyth Repository of History, assembled by Brock and the late Janis Vodden. While the Voddens previously housed the repository, which includes historical notes on local families and events going back past the founding of Blyth, it has recently been moved to 405 Queen Street, the home of North Huron Publishing and The Citizen.
A recently-formed board which includes Vodden, is now in charge of the collection and the fundraiser will help further the goals of that board, including housing the materials and making them available for the public.
Donations of used books will still be accepted through May 30 at Blyth Memorial Hall from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For more information, call repository board member and The Citizen Publisher Deb Sholdice at 519-523-4792.
