Haven Books News
We see it in the faces of students & volunteers every day: Haven Books isn't just a
student bookstore, it's a movement. A movement towards fairer textbook prices, and a
movement for students to take back control over our own textbooks. After all, if we're
required to buy textbooks every year, shouldn't the customers have a say? Stay tuned to
this page for the latest Haven Books news & events.

Earn Shinerama Dollars
Haven Books is supporting the Carleton Frosh Week Shinerama drive this year! Shinerama is Canada's
largest post-secondary school fundraising program, and results in thousands raised each year for
the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Society. In support of
student efforts to raise money for this cause, Haven Books will donate $1 to your Shinerama drive
for each of your group's Frosh that comes to Haven Books. To collect, just show up with your Frosh
Group at the store and we will donate $1 for each of your groups' Frosh that are present on the spot.
Groups can only participate once, and a group Head or AssHead must be present to collect. But there's
thousands of Frosh, so make sure to come on down - we're only 1 block off campus!
Save $5 for Each Consignor Card
Haven Books is pleased to extend the popular Consignor Card Promotion. For every current textbook
you consign at the store, a stamp is given on your Consignor Card. Collect 5 stamps, and redeem your
Card for $5 off your next purchase in-store. There is no limit to the amount of current textbooks
you can consign! So bring textbooks in you want to make money from, and save in the process.

Haven Books Moves Closer to Campus!
Here we grow again: effective August 2003 Haven Books has outgrown our old store and moved to a
new location at 43 Senenca Street (at Seneca & Sunnyside). The larger location is less than a 5 minute
walk from campus, and the move was necessary due to the increasing number of students selling their
books at the store. We can now offer a much larger & convenient space to buy & sell your books. If you
haven't yet, come and check out the new shop.
