Bargain priced books by the bag full

BAG a bunch of books for a bargain at Grafton Rotary Club's book sale.

More than 10,000 second-hand books donated by the Clarence Valley Council library service, will be on sale at the Grafton Community centre on Saturday.

Project co-ordinator Peter Robinson said there would be something for everyone.

"Fiction, non-fiction, lifestyle and travel - you name it, it's basically there," Mr Robinson said.

"We're hoping for a good roll-up to get it under way and the majority of the books will sold by the bag."

The price for a grocery bag full of books will be $6, with some like-new publications to be sold for just $2 each.

All children's books are free.

The book sale, run in conjunction with the council library, will be the first of planned book sales to raise funds for the library service and Rotary projects, and to encourage reading as part of a broader literacy program.

"We aim to run the book sale twice a year, similar to the model adopted by the Maclean Rotary Club for its long-running book sales program," Mr Robinson said.

"That concept includes the option, once you have finished with the books, to bring them to the next book sale for the Rotary Clubs to re-sell."

The Grafton and Grafton Midday Rotary Club book sale will be held from 9am-5pm on Saturday at the Grafton Community Centre.
