The Rotary Club of White Rock is gearing up to host its 32nd annual book sale.

Set for March 2-9, it will be held in the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre (1701 152 St.) in South Surrey.

Funds raised are to benefit the Source's White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank, to which the club has committed to contribute $50,000 over the next two years towards the purchase and installation of an elevator – a much-needed addition to the food bank's new location at 2343 156 St.

The book sale – which every year offers up tens of thousands of gently used books – has raised about $1 million over the years.

For more information or to volunteer to help out with the sale, email wrrotary2014booksales@gmail.com
