CHRISTMAS BOOK FAIR
2nd & 3rd December 2023
Helensville A&P Showgrounds
“Still the Biggest & Best Book Fair in the West!”
The Lions Club of Helensville will be holding their Christmas Book Fair at the Helensville A&P Association Show grounds on the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of December, opening at 9.00am on Saturday until 4.00pm and again on Sunday 10.00am until 3.00pm. As this is a community event entry is free, and we do not allow traders in before you, our community.
Our last Book Fair held in May raised $11,823 from the sale of books, for which many thanks. All the money raised went towards helping individuals and organizations in the community that required assistance. The funds raised from this Book Fair will go towards the sculpture by Jeff Thomson being planned for the entrance to the town. A mockup and information on this project will be on display at the Book Fair.
All books are priced to sell, with nothing over $2. There is a large selection of children’s books, still at 50c.There are also many jigsaw puzzles, board games, DVDs, CDs, and quality magazines available.
Non-Fiction will be split into twenty separate categories, including one section dedicated to New Zealand subjects, which is still our largest section. Of interest is a new section for music. A large amount of sheet music, scores, criticism and biographies of composers and performers has come to hand. There is also plenty of general Non-Fiction which you can spend hours browsing through.
Fiction is arranged alphabetically by authors, with six special interest groups, the largest of which is the Fantasy/Science Fiction section. There are also many Children’s and YA’s books.
Small donations of books can be left at Burmester Realty, Helensville, or for larger lots, call Chris on 09 420 8527, or any other member of the Helensville Lions.
Please note that the last date we are accepting books for this Book Fair is Friday 24th May.
