Book lovers get excited in May because there are usually two big used book sales in Calgary each Spring. We don’t know when the RESET Society Calgary Used Book Sale (Formerly Servants Anonymous) will be in 2021, but we do know that they are trying to make something happen, as it’s a big fundraiser for them.
