Projects & Programs

Book Room

The Book Room is re-opening on Thursday October 21st 2021. Hours of operation: Wednesday through Sunday 10am to 4pm.

The Book Room is a significant fundraiser for the Friends and is staffed by a team of volunteers whose knowledge of the collection is only surpassed by their motivation! 

The Book Room is located adjacent to the Canadian War Museum Research Library and offers a wide selection of Historical Military books, biographies and more.

Standard CWM Covid protocol must be followed – for more information visit the CWM website.

A selection of books, from the Book Room, will still be available to purchase during Canadian War Museum’s open hours at the CWM Gift Shop.

For those who have book donations, we ask that you contact the FCWM Office at ( with particulars. We will not be picking up any books or arranging for delivery until after December 1st, 2021.   We hope to resume accepting donations once our inventory is adjusted.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or are not feeling well, please postpone your visit until you are feeling better.  Masks are required while in Book Room and visitors will be restricted to one person (or one family unit) at a time in the book stacks.
