Attention all bookworms, literature lovers and avid readers! Mutchmor Public School is thrilled to announce the return of the much-anticipated Mutchmor Book Sale April 18-21.

Whether you’re on the lookout for timeless classics, gripping mysteries, bestselling fiction or graphic novels, our book sale has something for everyone. In addition to acquiring fantastic reads, the book sale is also an opportunity to support our school and foster a love of reading within our community. Every purchase directly contributes to supporting local charities and schools in need as well as to purchase classroom and library supplies and sports equipment and to fund cultural presentations and other school needs. The main focus of this year’s fundraising efforts continues to be the replacement of the play structure in the junior yard.

In 2023 we were blown away with over 20,000 books donated and a steady stream of book lovers shopping throughout the weekend. My kids were thrilled with their purchases of new Dog Man graphic novels, Harry Potter and a cranky bear story to add to our library. I found books that had long been on my “to read” list including The Brain That Changes Itself and the Giller-Prize-winning collection of short stories How to Pronounce Knife. I’ve updated my reading wish list for 2024 and am looking forward to seeing you at Mutchmor April 18-21!
