GROW your home library for the bargain price of $8 for a bag of books with children's titles going for free.
Sponsored by the combined Rotary Clubs of Grafton Midday and Grafton, the sale will be held this Saturday at the Community Centre in Duke St from 1pm.
This is the third bi-annual book sale organised by the Rotary clubs in conjunction with the Clarence Valley Council library service.
Project Co-ordinator, Rotarian Peter Robinson, explained that anyone can select as many books that can fit into a standard grocery bag for $8 and all children's book are free, in addition to the paid bag.
"There are more than 10,000 book available covering fiction, non-fiction, lifestyle and travel, with something for everyone," Mr Robinson said.
"There will also a good stock of children's book at this sale."
A stand-out item is a complete set of 26 volumes of 'Hutchinson's Pictorial History of the War' from 1940 through to 1945.
The set is in good condition and offers will be taken for this rare lot with the best received over the undisclosed reserve being accepted at the close of the sale.
"The set will not be broken up according to the donor's instructions," Mr Robinson said.
Once readers have finished with their books they are welcome to return them for the next Rotary sale.
The aim of the sale is to encourage reading as a part of the broader Rotary literacy programs, as well as to raise funds for the Clarence Valley Council library service and selected Rotary projects.
