Where are we?

As its name implies, you can find the book store with thousands of books in the Church basement! Come in the side entry on the south side of the Church building either by walking up the sidewalk from Main Street or by coming in from the parking lot at the back of the building.

More than books

The shop features 16,000+ books of all kinds ... fiction and non-fiction for children, adults and teens; science, anthropology, sports, biography, classics, etc. There are also puzzles, games, CDs and DVDs for sale.

Our books are priced so that anyone can take home something to read. You can purchase a bag of books for $10.00. Small paperbacks are $.50 apiece and hard covers and large paperbacks for $1.00 each.


Volunteers from the congregation and community operate the bookshop - volunteers who love books. (You can tell when you are at the shop). They are helpful but they also just let you browse! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the shop, call the Church Office, 705-724-2815.

Where does the money go?

 All proceeds from the sale of the books go to the Church. But not all books that come to the bookstore are sold. The Basement Bookstore gives books to several organizations, locally and globally such as prisons, community centres, schools and nursing homes.  

If you have books you would like to donate to the Bookshop, bring 'em on in!
