Byron Library’s annual Book Fair is on again on July 14 – 15.

Are you looking for a book treasure – or perhaps you are looking for Treasure Island?

If the answer is yes then make sure you get down to the Friends of Libraries Byron Shire annual Book Fair on July 14 and 15 at 10am till 1pm at the Byron Bay Surf Club.

Quality secondhand books are on offer including fiction, non-fiction, old and rare collections, children, health, history, cooking, audio books, vinyl records and much more.

Also for the first time this year there will be great activities for children and most importantly, the Friends of Libraries monster raffle, with prizes donated by local businesses and drawn on the last day of the fair.

The Book Fair is Friends of Libraries major annual fundraiser assisting Byron Shire libraries (Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and Brunswick) with new books, infrastructure etc, keeping these great community hubs so popular today.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. The headline is a bit misleading. It’s Friends of the Libraries’ (a volunteer group) book fair rather than Byron Library book fair. All the proceeds go to library resources helping to ameliorate the funding cuts at both local and state level. What a travesty that profits have to be dented by the need to rent a premises to hold the fair rather than a suitable venue being available for such a worthy fundraiser eg the ‘community and exhibition space’ in the library building.
