Tonari Gumi Used Book Sale a Success–Still Some Books Available for Sale!!

On Thursday, Aug. 20th Tonari Gumi held its annual used Japanese Book and Rummage Sale.DSC_0128  It was a great success with many customers lining up at the door prior to its start.  With the departure of most of the Japanese book stores from the Lower Mainland, it has become very difficult for those seeking a variety of books written in Japanese.  As a service to the community, Tonari Gumi has been holding its used Japanese book sale for many years and it is a very popular event.
