Kanata United Church Book Fair

Kanata United Church’s 30th annual Book Fair is taking place May 10th to 14th, 2022.

It is one of the largest book fairs in Eastern Ontario, typically offering more than 40,000 books. Books, generously donated by our community, are sorted by category and priced, mostly at $1 to $3 each. Proceeds from the sale of books support KUC’s programs and many local charities including:

  • Kanata Food Cupboard
  • Stittsville Food Bank
  • Kanata-Stittsville Refugee Sponsorship Group
  • Matthew House (refugee services and furniture bank)
  • Ottawa Network for Education School Breakfast Program
  • Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity
  • The Odawa Native Friendship Centre
  • Harvest House
  • Multifaith Housing Initiative
  • Ottawa West End Community Chaplaincy

The Book Fair is the result of several thousand hours of volunteer effort spread over much of the year before the sale. More volunteers are welcome to take a share of the work, so if you are interested in knowing more, please contact books@kuc.ca.
