Grafton Midday Rotary Giant Book Sale is on again

Grafton Midday Rotary is staging the next Book Sale June 3-4, fittingly, at the Criterion Theatre.

Book Sale coordinator, Grafton Midday Rotarian Peter Robinson said, “The book sale will run from Friday 8.30am to 6pm and Saturday 8am to 1pm.”

“We are planning a giant book sale! We were deluged with lots of new books during the Covid book sale suspensions, so there will be lots of opportunities to discover that book which is something special. And fresh stock will be added throughout the sale so there will be good chances to pick up books of interest over the two-day sale.”

“Prices have not changed: still $10 a shopping bag, and children’s books are Free.”

“With find that children simply love to go through the children’s section. They are often inspired to become book lovers and avid readers.”

“With Covid 19 in mind, masks are encouraged, especially if people feel safer that way, but are not compulsory.”

“A wet winter is coming up, so the book sale is a great time for book lovers, young and old, to stock up on some relatively new but preloved books as well as some well-worn tomes.”

The Grafton Midday Rotary book sale aims to promote literacy and to raise funds to support the local community.
