Thanks to the generous donation by Mitch and Tammi Vic of K-MAX Games and Videos, Literacy Quesnel is now in the business of selling, for $2 a book, used adult fiction from the new location Room 206 – 488 McLean Street, Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. This new venture is well within Literacy Quesnel’s  mandate of enhancing and encouraging literacy in all its forms in the community.

For the past 10 years K-MAX has maintained the used books service but with their growing business there was no longer room so they donated the books, the bookcases and hardware to Literacy Quesnel. “We are very grateful to Mitch and Tammi for this incredible gift.”

Literacy Quesnel Coordinator Rebecca Beuschel said they will continue giving away children’s books for free through their literacy events and their Bright Red Bookshelves that are positioned in family-friendly places in the community.
