Children's Hospital Book Market

Apr 23, 2020 - Apr 25, 2020

The 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. 

The concept of 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 two annual sales, April and September.

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.

Location: St. Vital Centre

Thursday, April 23rd: 9:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Friday, April 24th: 9:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 25th: 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.


Donate your used books to the Children’s Hospital Book Market!

Book donations are accepted year round and can be dropped off at any Winnipeg Fire Hall or Dufresne Furniture store. View a list of drop off locations.

Please note: There are some books we receive that are simply not marketable so we ask that you please refrain from donating these types of books. View a list of books we do not accept.


Your Support Brings Joy!

When you support the Children’s Hospital Book Market, you are providing funding to many important programs at the Children’s Hospital like CHTV. Children’s Hospital TV (CHTV) is the in-house TV station that provides entertainment to the patients & their families.
