Biggest ever Rotary book sale

The next Maclean Rotary Giant Rotary Book Sale scheduled for next weekend, January 15 and 16 is proving to be the biggest in the Sale’s sixteen year history. There has been an unprecedented flow of book donations to the Club for the sale, straining storage capacity at the Club shed. The donations have been so generous, that the Club has planned for an unprecedented four sales this year —January, April August and November. This first sale in the New Year is again scheduled for the dining room at the Maclean Bowling Club, with doors opening at 9am on the Friday to 6 pm and 9am to noon on Saturday. On sale will be one of the best collections of good clean books ever on offer, many in as new conditions. Every imaginable popular author is in evidence, both in hard and soft cover editions as well as thousands of paper-backs. This sale will include many hundreds of Mills and Boon books in never read condition. In the hobbies section, there are handbooks or rules and training for a wide range of sporting and gymnastic activities, fishing, sailing, and motor vehicle service manuals, gardening and cooking. There is a substantial number of magazines and handbooks on handcrafts, weaving, embroidery and knitting. For the history buff the history of many of our northern neighbours is available, as well commentaries. As usual there is a very large number of books for children from ages two to 12 which are available to children, our future readers, free of charge. Grandmas, always eager visitors to this table are asked for a donation. Proceeds from the sale will be shared with the Clarence Regional Library Service and Rotary projects, including the provision of additional life saving facilities at Brooms Head. Dick Richards
