Book fair fundraiser on again

A large array of books available.

 Books, books and more books – Rotary Noosa Daybreak’s popular annual BOOKFEST NOOSA is back.

Held over three days from Friday, April 30 to Sunday May 2, 9am to 5pm every day, the giant book sale will return to the Noosa Leisure Centre, in Wallace Drive, Noosaville (next to Noosa Library).

Books this year are at bargain basement prices, so everyone is assured of a great buy. Customers are invited to come along and invest in a whole new library to tide them over until the next book festival Rotary Noosa Daybreak spokesman Peter Smith said.

“During the weekend there will be a larger number of quality pre-loved books for sale than ever before, thanks to the donations collected all year round, and all on display for three days of browsing and choosing, at the one location in the Leisure Centre,” Peter said.

“This year for the first time, the huge collection of Fiction books will be displayed in alphabetical order of Authors, making selection easier.

“Funds raised at the BOOKFEST NOOSA this year will go directly towards benefiting our community; Rotary Noosa Daybreak are jointly funding a Phd student researching Suicide Prevention, with University of Sunshine Coast and Australian Rotary Health.

“This is a three-year commitment.”

He said the event was about Rotary supporting people in the Sunshine Coast community:-

providing thousands of books for sale; children’s at $1 each, all others $2.50 each; fundraising directly for the benefit of Mental Health Research into Suicide Prevention and fundraising for local causes including Salvation Army and Rotary Youth Projects
