The 12th Annual Used Book Sale for Mississauga Symphony held from Thursday, September 19th to Sunday, September 23rd 2007 in Mississauga, (Ontario, Canada) at the Sheridan Centre. The book sale is quite large, with 54,000 books. The books are divided into 48 categories from history, sci-fi, romance and other genres.

Last year’s book sale had 20,000 books and the symphony was quite pleased to raise $46,000. The book sale also features CDs, DVDs, records, games, puzzles and assorted epherma (postcards and calendars and other printed materials).

Books are sold for very reasonable prices, from fifty cents to $3.00 each. The book sale has thirty dedicated volunteers that work year-round to prepare for the sale, but during the book sale week there are more than 180 volunteers working on the sale. The book sale is the symphony’s largest fundraiser of the year.
