Thousands of books on sale during next week’s Founders College Book Sale

The Founders College Book Sale offers a perfect antidote to mid-winter blahs.

Staff in the Master’s Office, together with their team of volunteers, have been collecting books for more than a year in preparation for this sale. There are thousands of new and previously loved books in the offering and all have been donated by the York community. In addition to mysteries, popular fiction, self-help tomes, textbooks, cookbooks and biographies, there will also be reference, languages and books for all student needs.

Some of the items donated are brand new and haven’t been taken out of their plastic wrap. There are also a number of real finds – rare and antiquarian books that are well preserved.

Funds raised by the sale will go directly into student space at Founders College. The sale, which begins Monday, Jan. 18, runs daily from 9am to 4pm, until Friday, Jan. 22. 

The books will be available in the Founders Assembly Hall, 152 Foundes College, on York’s Keele campus.
