Stock up on your summer reading titles – and support a cause that is helping local foster kids realize their potential – at a gently used book sale in Cloverdale.

Thursday, July 14, SOS Children’s Village BC hosts the first of a series of book sales being organized this summer to help raise money for its Fostering Growth Program.

The initiative is aimed at helping foster kids do better in school by improving their comfort and confidence in social situations and giving their natural talents an opportunity to flourish.

Second-hand and used books in a range of titles, authors and genres will be on sale for just $0.50 each.

The sale takes place at SOS BC’s office at #102-5830 176A Street, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Another sale is planned for Aug. 25, and more book sales will be announced soon. For more information, visit www.sosbc.org or facebook/SOSChildrensVillageBC.
