Booksale in the Abbotsford library to support UFV Library's Special Collections

Recently, some cookbooks were donated to the library and many of them could not be added to the Newman Western Canadian Cookbook Collection because they fall outside of the collection mandate.  The books for sale are in good condition and are being sold for $1/each.   All proceeds will go towards building the Newman collection.  There are some great titles for sale: Company's Coming titles, Australian Women's Weekly titles, and BBQ, Italian, Chinese and South Asian cookbooks  for example.

If you have any questions, please contact Mary-Anne MacDougall
