Books snapped up
THE Civic Centre was overrun with bargain-hunters on the weekend, as bookworms came out in droves for the Bundaberg Library and East Bundaberg Rotary Book Sale.
Event co-ordinator Sue Gammon estimated about 15,000 books were sold, raising more than $12,000 for the library and Rotary Club.
“We had about 500 people in two hours on Saturday.
“We put out masses of kids picture books — I blinked and they were all sold,” Ms Gammon said.
She said Bundaberg’s appetite for books was stronger than ever.
“It’s the first time we’ve had the book sale on two days, and people were still coming in as we were closing up,” she said.
“We will look at having them more often in future.”
