THE success of the Geelong West Rotary Club’s annual Monster Book Fair, usually held in August each year, has prompted the club to double the opportunity for the community to purchase from the biggest variety of secondhand books at the best prices possible, by scheduling two fairs this year.
The first book fair for the year will be held at Geelong West Town Hall, opening on Saturday 12 March and the continuing on Sunday and Monday 13 and 14 March.
“The book fair has become such a popular event and we have collected and sorted thousands and thousands of great books, in so many genres, and we want to give the community more opportunity to get their hands on the amazing book bargains – the club will have over 25,000 books for sale and all books will again be only $1 each,” club president Jim Marendaz said.
“You you can go home with an armful of books for little cost while, at the same time, helping our Rotary club to make a positive difference in our community,” Mr Marendaz said.
“All funds raised go towards supporting meaningful community projects such as supplying the Barwon Health Foundation with patient transfer vehicles for treatments such as dialysis and chemotherapy, as well as financial grants for Operation New Start – an innovative re-engagement program for young people aged 14 -17 who are at risk.”
The club has been sorting the books into the various categories and buyers can be assured that there are some exceptional bargains.
The Geelong West Rotary Club is grateful for the generous event support received from the City of Greater Geelong, Tuckers Funeral Service, Zippy Removals and Paul.
The sale is on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March, from 9am to 5pm, and Monday 14 March 9am to 2pm
