Books wanted for fair

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

If you are clear­ing your book­case the Mata­mata His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety would love to hear from you.

The so­ci­ety is get­ting ready for its an­nual Book Fair on Oc­to­ber 13, 14 and 15 at the old Al­ibi Bar at 94-96 Broad­way in Mata­mata.

‘‘All pre-loved books are grate­fully ac­cepted, so don’t hes­i­tate to get in touch,’’ said Book Fair co-or­di­na­tor Colin Kem­plen.

‘‘As well as books, we are happy to take jig­saw puz­zles, CDs, DVDs, videos, records, tapes and mag­a­zines,’’ he said.

The Cit­i­zens Advice Bureau at Rail­side on the Green is the drop off point. They are open from 10am to 4pm week­days.

Mr Kem­plen said there was an en­thu­si­as­tic team stand­ing by to start sort­ing the books into their var­i­ous cat­e­gories.

‘‘If you came to the fair last year you’ll know that there is al­ways a bar­gain to be had,’’ he said. ‘‘We haven’t changed the prices this year so you’ll be able to buy a top qual­ity pa­per­back for $2 and a qual­ity cof­fee ta­ble book for around $5.’’

Funds raised will be used to main­tain Mata­mata His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s her­itage dis­plays at the Firth Tower mu­seum com­plex on Tower Rd. For more in­for­ma­tion phone Colin Kem­plen 888 4172.
