WOODGATE BOOKFEST

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

BOOK lovers and avid read­ers gath­ered in Woodgate this week for their monthly Book Fest.

Or­gan­is­ers re­ceive book do­na­tions from the com­mu­nity on a daily ba­sis and the pro­ceeds raised from the sale of the books sup­ports the Can­cer Coun­cil of Queens­land.

Rosie McEwan said there are hun­dreds of books to sort through.

The Book Fest is grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity and each month the stall has a new se­lec­tion of fab­u­lous se­cond-hand books.

For two years the ded­i­cated team at Woodgate set up ta­bles with top qual­ity se­cond-hand books.

Mrs McEwan said if you have any pre-loved books she would wel­come all do­na­tions.

“You can drop off your books at the gen­eral store on the Es­planade at Woodgate,” she said.

“We have fic­tion, non-fic­tion, ad­ven­ture, ro­mance and plenty of chil­dren’s books,”

It was a fan­tas­tic morn­ing at Woodgate with dozens of peo­ple mak­ing pur­chases and all pro­ceeds go­ing to can­cer re­search.
