    This contradicts info on the VPL website

    Hi Lauren,

    That’s peculiar as all pertinent details about this event are exactly as stated on the VPL website as well as in an email I received from the Friends of the VPL.

    Dates, times, and location are as noted on the event page (linked in this post above).

    Should you have any questions about any specific details, you can call the library at 604-331-3603.

    Strange indeed…when I go to the VPL site:

    I see dates for July (but not for June)

    Hi Lauren,

    That is not the same book sale. The link that I have in my post is this one:
