Treasures for book worms at Bookarama
TRAILER loads of books have been rolling up to tumoetai College in recent weeks.
Every two years the community clears out their libraries and closets and donates to the tumoetai College PTA fundraiser Bookarama which takes place from September 8-9.
The event has been going strong for 30 years and is always well supported.
Run by the PTA, Bookarama is pegged as one of the best opportunities around for book worms and bargain hunters to find amazing reads and great authors for very little money.
Most books are priced at less than $3 or four for $10.
The school has a container close to being full of books of every genre— fiction, nonfiction, romance, history, biographies, mystery and adventure, self help, science fiction etc.
PTA committee member Paula Lonsdale says as usual, the O¯ PTA is humbled by the generosity shown by the school O¯ and its community who have¯O donated huge amounts of books and other items.
They have a particularly large amount of fiction reading on offer this year, Paula says.
Also up for grabs is CDs, records, puzzles, board games and vinyl records.
Eftpos is available. Bring your own bags.
