Love books and looking for the extraordinary?

Check out The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) St. John’s Great Big Book Sale! Here you may find anything from a Charles Dickens first edition to the latest best seller, and quite a bit in between.

The success of each sale results from the generous support of the public who donate thousands of used books every year and then come to the sale and buy them all back!!  We are most appreciative and we like to believe we are “turning books into scholarships”. We also believe that the Great Big Book Sale is recycling at its best.

Proceeds from the sale go mainly to scholarships and also support other initiatives of CFUW St. John’s.
