16th Annual Youth Centre Book Fair this weekend


More than 20,000 books are currently being sorted and set up for our annual book fair event this weekend at the Ferguson Forestry Centre. We are very thankful to the Ferguson Forest Centre for their continued support in providing us with not only the space to hold such a big event but also the ability to have early drop off and storage area of books leading up to the event.

We will be hosting our Exclusive invitation only Pre-Sale Event on Thursday, August 22, at the Ferguson Forestry Centre. Volunteers and sponsors are being invited to thank them for their continued support of the Kemptville Youth Centre. The Law office of Connie Lamble is sponsoring the Wine & Cheese Bar.

Once completed, our Annual Book Fair will be ready for all of the community to come in and purchase their favourite books.

Held Friday, August 23 (12pm-6pm), Saturday August 24 (9am-6pm) and Sunday August 25 (9am-12pm), we are hoping to meet our goal of $20,000 to help pay for the Centre’s mortgage and building expenses.

Come by and support the Kemptville Youth centre by purchasing some great reading material at a cost of only $2 per book or 25¢ per children’s book.

We already have a long list of sponsors and supporters, which includes, The Law Office of Connie Lamble, Grenville Mutual Insurance, Jansen Law, O’Farrell Financial, Pincott Business Finances, and the Rotary Club of Kemptville. Lunch will be provided to our volunteers by Catered Affairs. We thank everyone who has supported us so far, especially our KYC youth, who have been sorting books to help us prepare for the sale. If you are interested in adding your business as a sponsor and get your name out to the many customers coming through the Book Fair, contact us today!

The Youth Centre is still looking for volunteers. If you are able to volunteer some time to sell books and restock shelves for any of the sale hours, or help with the massive tidy up session on August 25, from 12pm-7pm, we appreciate any time you can help! Volunteers interested in helping can email Lisha_tristram@outlook.com, or drop by to lend a hand at any time.

Your book donations, volunteer time and purchasing power will make the difference in the lives of local youth by paying for a space to play, learn and grow. For more information on the Book Fair, do not hesitate to contact KYC at any time, or visit our website at www.kyc.team.
