Looking for a good book to read, as a festive season present?
Instead of the annual Book Fair in Byron this year, Friends of the Libraries are keeping you COVID-19 safe by creating a popup book sale.
‘Last year Friends of Libraries received over 10,000 donated books, DVDs, CDs in all categories including fiction, travel, self help, art, biographies, and children’s stories as well as donations of rare and collectable books to name a few’, said Margot Wright from Friends of Libraries Byron Shire.
Through their fundraising efforts, they are able to help keep your libraries well stocked and a place that is comfortable and enjoyable to spend time.
‘There is a wonderful selection of books that are far too good to leave in storage until next year, so, lovers of books and the community in general will be well rewarded by coming along to out popup sale. Many of the books are a great gift’.
The popup sale will take place between Monday, November 16 and Saturday, November 28 in a vacant shop near the former Woolies in the North Byron Plaza, Jonson Street, Byron Bay from 10am till 4pm.
‘Since the first Book Fair in 2015 in excess of $50,000 has been raised from the sale of second hand books and raffles’, said Ms Wright.
‘Books, desks, carpets, and furniture always need replacing’ and Friends of the Libraries are able to help with these updates for the community.
