Book lovers an­nual fair

Central Leader - - News -

Lit­er­a­ture lovers of all ages will find plenty of bar­gains at Ep­som Ro­tary Club’s an­nual book fair this month.

Un­ex­pected trea­sures are a guar­an­teed find with pro­ceeds from the fair go­ing to­wards sup­port­ing lo­cal schools’ read­ing pro­grammes.

The club is cur­rently ac­cept­ing do­na­tions from the com­mu­nity for the fair and ex­pects to dis­play more than 60,000 items rang­ing from fic­tion nov­els to uni­ver­sity text­books, DVDs and CDs.

Club mem­ber Doug Bunt­ing says the book fair has been run­ning for 11 years and is a great op­por­tu­nity to give back to the com­mu­nity, with most items cost­ing less than $10.

“We’d rather see them go out the door than keep hold of them un­til next year.”

Mr Bunt­ing has been a mem­ber of the Ep­som Ro­tary Club for more than 30 years and says the book fair is the club’s ma­jor fundrais­ing event.

Ro­tary is a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to projects in the com­mu­nity.

It also sup­ports pro­grammes and ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents, teach­ers and other pro­fes­sion­als.

The book fair will be held on May 16 from 8am to 5pm and on May 17 from 9am to 3pm on Sun­day at the Mt Eden War Memo­rial Hall, 489 Do­min­ion Rd.

En­try is $12 be­tween 8am and 9am on Satur­day and free for the rest of the week­end.

To do­nate books, DVDs, CDs, videos, sheet mu­sic, chil­dren’s toys and puz­zles, sim­ply drop them off to your clos­est BP ser­vice sta­tion in Ep­som, Mt Eden or Do­min­ion Rd or phone 367-6421 to ar­range col­lec­tion.

For more in­for­ma­tion phone 625-8850.
