Get ready for book bargain hunt
A BOOK lover’s paradise will be created at the Bundaberg Civic Centre this weekend for the Bundaberg Library and East Bundaberg Rotary Club annual book sale.
Bundaberg Library youth and community services librarian Sue Gammon said the sale would include thousands of books with prices starting at 50 cents.
“We’ve got everything. A lot is stuff the library has discarded; they are a little bit old or they are duplicates which we do not need anymore,” she said.
Ms Gammon said the sale had 12 pallets that each fit about 60 boxes of books.
While there are a massive number of books, Ms Gammon warned keen book shoppers to arrive early.
“We open at 8am and last year we had people lining up as early as 7.15am,” she said.
Doors will open from 8am to 3.30pm on Saturday and 8am to noon on Sunday.
Ms Gammon, who is also president of the East Bundaberg Rotary Club, said money would be split between the library and Rotary.
“The money raised this year will go towards the library’s touring authors program,” she said.
“Last year the Rotary club used the money to help buy equipment for the hospital.”
