“The Best Book Fair in the West!”
24th/25th November 2018 at Helensville War Memorial Hall
This is an event that is rapidly becoming the “Go To” amongst book lovers and follows on from the success of the Autumn Book Fair in May where $8,958 was raised. The Lions Club of Helensville, is once again holding their Christmas Book Fair on, Saturday 24th, 9am to 4pm and Sunday 25th 10am to 3pm of November, in the Helensville War Memorial Hall.
As a point of difference from other book fairs all our books have been sorted before the event and are not just dumped in boxes on tables for the public to scrabble through. The aim of the Helensville Lions is to make your weekend of browsing as effortless and pleasurable as possible.
Nonfiction is split into twenty separate categories, from Animals & Pets to Wines including one dedicated to New Zealand plus a large General Non Fiction section. Of special interest this fair is the Maritime Section featuring a large collection of books on boat building, sailing and solo navigation.
Fiction is arranged alphabetically, authors from Atwood to Zigman, with six special interest groups, the largest of which is the Fantasy section. We also have a great selection of children’s books for all ages.
Books are priced to sell with paperbacks at $1, hardbacks at $2.00 and all children’s books being 50c each.
There is also a good selection of jigsaws, board games, puzzles, LPs, DVDs, CDs and quality magazines available.
All funds raised go into The Lions Club of Helensville Charitable Trust, and are used for the benefit of the local community.
Smaller donations can be left at Helensville Copy & Print or call Chris on 09 420 8527
Please note that the last date we are accepting books for this Book Fair is Friday 16th November, this gives us time to categorise the books.
