The book fair engages teams from across Concordia, including Distribution and Transportation Services, Hospitality Concordia and Security. About 75 additional people volunteer, many of them students, including members of the Concordia Stingers men’s rugby team.

During the year, volunteers stay busy sorting the many donations we get into categories for sale.

We need Book Sorters!

  • How often? Once a month
  • How long? 2 hours, from 5 to 7 pm on Tuesdays or Wednesdays
  • Where? Hall Building basement
  • Take home a book at the end of your shift as our thanks.
