Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit https://upei.bookware3000.ca/Course/campus to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact email@example.com for any questions.
Owen Connolly: The Making Of A Legacy 1820-2016
From 1820 to 2016 on P.E.I., the Owen Connolly Estate has funded approximately $3 million to help thousands
of Island students of Irish Catholic heritage gain a higher education, and achieve career success. This is the
remarkable rags-to-riches story of the man who created this legacy, and the people who protected it.
Owen Connolly was a young immigrant lad escaping poverty and repression in his homeland of Ireland when
he first stepped onto the docks in Charlottetown, P.E.I. in 1839. Armed with little more than determination and
grit and a brilliant financial mind, over the next forty years he rose from being a dirt-poor farmer in Watervale to one of the
wealthiest men on Prince Edward Island.
