It’s been a longer wait than usual for the annual Rotary book sale but an “Aladdin’s Cave of book treasures” awaits in what will be the biggest event yet.

This year’s book sale, which is a joint initiative between Bundaberg Regional Libraries and Rotary Club of Bundaberg Central will be held at the Recreation Precinct from 9-11 October.

Rotary Club of Bundaberg Central president David Baldry said residents could expect a large range of books, magazines, puzzles, DVDs and CDs across a wide variety of genres.

“We normally have it in July so it’s been three months longer this time,” David said.

“So we’ve got more books and we’ve got a bigger premises so it’ll be huge.”

Funds raised from the annual Rotary book sale are split with 60 per cent going towards Rotary initiatives and 40 per cent assisting with the library’s literacy programs.

David said the funds were vital for many of Rotary’s regular projects.

“We do men’s shelter packs, we do water wells in Cambodia, we do drought relief funds, indigenous camp, youth projects, we sponsor a student to the science fair.”

Entrance to the book sale to be held at the Recreation Precinct is via University Drive.

Cash and Eftpos payment will be available.

Rotary asks that anyone feeling unwell does not attend this event, with normal COVID restrictions to apply.

  1. @Leonie it is across the road from the University Campus, between University Drive and Kendalls Road. The area is not far from the Airport if you are wondering which part of Bundy the University Campus is 🙂

  2. What a shambles it is this year. they didn't even try, no order, no thought, just a woeful lack of effort, dumping books on tables marked non fiction and fiction is not good enough.. last three years past it was good, but this 2020 effort is atrocious.
