THE ARTS – Barb’s used book and music sale set for mid-November

The Kamloops Symphony’s semi-annual fundraiser is back. After a smaller scale pop-up version in August in lieu of the spring sale, Barb’s Used Book & Music Sale is returning to full size for the fall edition.

The sale is once again being held at 444 Seymour Street (the former Value Village location downtown), and will run from Saturday, Nov. 14 to Saturday, Nov. 28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Large quantities of gently used books, sheet music, vinyl records, DVDs, and CDs have been received and most are available for only $2. All money raised by the sale goes towards the Kamloops Symphony’s operating expenses, which include everything from concert productions to educational programs.

Donations will be accepted at 444 Seymour Street from Oct. 26-30, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. COVID restrictions prevent volunteers and staff from providing any physical on-site assistance with donations, and no donations can be accepted during the sale itself.

Running consistently since 1997, the sale is named after the late Barb Corbishley, a former KSO board member.
