The Children’s Hospital Book Market is seeking donations of gently used hard and soft cover books.

Organizers are hoping spring cleaning will help turn up donations from homes across the city, but they kindly ask that no encyclopedias or Reader’s Digests be donated.

Books can be dropped off at any Dufresne Furniture store or Winnipeg firehall.

The next sale will be held at St. Vital Centre from April 21-28. All sales support the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, which funds vital kids programs and equipment at the Children’s Hospital and life-saving pediatric research through the Manitoba Institute of Child Health.
