Book­worms get into the bar­gains

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Book­worm bo­nanza: Shop­ping bags filled with books weren’t an un­usual sight at this year’s Mata­mata His­tor­i­cal Book Fair.

Thou­sands of do­nated books were put up for sale at low prices, and the crowds flocked to stock up their book shelves for another year.

Pro­ceeds raised this year will be go­ing to­wards the es­tab­lish­ment of a dairy dis­play in the newly built cow­shed at the Firth Tower Mu­seum.

The fair held at the for­mer Ta­bles on Broad­way started on Oc­to­ber 3 and fin­ished on Oc­to­ber 5.

Win­tec jour­nal­ism stu­dent Ali Brady went along to take some shots of the open­ing morn­ing.
