Fundraising is key to Rotary's support for our community. We hold our celebrated Giant Used Book Sale twice a year (fall and spring) with the cooperation of the Nanaimo North Town Centre.
 
Our recent fall sale was an amazing success thanks to everyone who donated, bought or helped with the sale.
Focus on Education and Literacy: Legacy of a Famous Book Sale in Nanaimo
September is Rotary International’s Basic Education and Literacy Month. This month highlights the importance of literacy and its goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. Education and literacy are essential for reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging community and economic development and promoting peace.
 
The Rotary Club of Nanaimo maintains basic education and literacy as one of its main areas of focus and in support of that and other important community initiatives in the region, the club has held its now famous fundraiser, the Rotary Book Sale, for 14 years.
