Children's Hospital Book Market

Apr 23, 2020

The health and safety of the community is our top priority right now. As we continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and are in regular dialogue with local, provincial and Canadian health authorities, we have made the decision to cancel some events that would have large groups of people together. As a result we have cancelled the upcoming Children’s Hospital Book Market.

We also ask at this time that no further books be donated at the drop off locations as our Book Market volunteers are following provincial health recommendations to stay home and limit social gatherings.

We thank you all for your support and understanding. Stay tuned for more information about the fall Book Market.

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.


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

Due to COVID-19 concerns, we please ask that no further books be donated at this time. Our Book Market volunteers are following provincial health recommendations to stay home and limit social gatherings.


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. This includes a live 1 hour broadcast each day that entertains and engages our patients to have fun!
