Dufresne Children's Hospital Book Market
Save the date! The next Dufresne Children’s Hospital Book Market is coming to St. Vital Centre on September 28-30, 2017.
You will be able to find your much-needed and much-wanted books at incredible prices!
All funds raised support the Children’s Hospital Library - providing books and videos to all in-patients, CHTV - the internal non-commercial hospital TV station, as well as the Family Resource Library - which provides resources and support for both in-patients and out-patients and their families.
The Dufresne Children’s Hospital Book Market was established in 1961 and is the longest running fundraiser in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
In 2010, the Book Market celebrated 50 years of supporting child health care in the province and brought in record sales!
The concept of the Book Market is simple. Members of the community drop off used books at our various outlets and volunteers sort, mark, pack and price books in over 65 categories that are then sold at three sales a year.
Since its inception, the Book Market has raised over $8 million in support of child health care in Manitoba and received numerous awards including the Mayor’s Volunteer Service Award and a Teddy Award.
