After 15 very successful years, this will be the last Book Sale organised by Rotary.

“The decision to have this sale as our final is a combination of losing our storage facilities at Pelican Pest plus the demands on our Members of collating, stacking and lifting the books given our rising ages,” Rotary’s Roger Digby told News Of The Area.

Locals and tourists alike have flocked to the Book Sale every year, a tradition that will be sadly missed.

When it first started, the sale was held over the Easter weekend, then moved to the January holiday period.

“There will be plenty of bargains to be found and we look forward to an event which is very popular and helps fund many worthwhile local causes,” Roger said.

As always, there will be thousands of books on offer, a veritable gold mine for literary lovers.

So put these dates in your diary, this coming Friday 4 January through to Sunday 6 January, the sale being held in the Hawks Nest Community Hall on the corner of Booner and Tuloa Streets.

Over the Christmas period, Rotary with the help of local Senior Police Constable Dave Coyle, drew the winners of their 6-week raffle with the first prize of a trip to China.

And the lucky winner was Hawks Nest resident Loretta Baker.
