Hundreds of adults’ fiction and non-fiction titles will be on sale, and will range in price from 20 cents to $1. Bryce Courtney, Jeffrey Archer and Michael Creighton are just some of authors up for grabs, and non-fiction subjects including gardening, cooking and parenting.
The book sale is an opportunity for our libraries to remove old stock, multiple titles and books that have seen a lot of ‘love’. Books that have remained on the shelf, and have not been borrowed for three years are also for sale.
Money raised from the sale goes towards new books.
“We need to give the library stock a spring clean every so often to make sure we’ve got enough room for the new books we add to our shelves each year and to make sure our collection reflects the community’s interests,’’ Council’s Manager Community, Cultural and Library Services Jenny Thompson said.
“There are some great titles in the mix and we don’t want to just throw them out. That’s why we hold our book sales. People can come along, pick up a few books and have some interesting books on their shelves reading for their summer holidays.’’
The book sale will be in the ground floor reading room during library hours until Saturday.
