IT’S that time of year when book lovers unite for a good cause - the Goulburn Mulwaree Rotary Book Fair.
This year the Book Fair is located in rooms next to the Railway Cafe in Sloane St. It opened on Monday and is running for two weeks until Sunday, October 2, from 9am to 5pm daily.
Goulburn Mulwaree Rotary president Sarah Ruberto said this year there were books on just about everything at some excellent prices.
“It’s a book lover’s paradise,” Mrs Ruberto said.
“We have all sorts of books – there are three rooms: one room for fiction, one for non-fiction and one for children’s books as well as very popular authors.
“The non-fiction section including books on cooking, gardening, history, humour and Australiana.”
Mrs Ruberto said the Book Fair was one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for the Goulburn Mulwaree Rotary, along with the annual Swap Meet.
She said it was a huge job setting it up, running it and packing it up, and club members donated a lot of their time to carry it off. All proceeds from it go to local Rotary projects and charities.
Donations of books are welcome and can be dropped off at any time during the Book Fair’s opening hours.
“Please only donate books in relatively good condition,” she said.
Paperbacks are two for $5; hardcovers, two for $10- $12.
