Albion St turns into a paradise for book lovers

THOUSANDS of books are up for grabs in town over the next five days.

The annual Big Book Sale put on by the Rotary Club of Warwick Sunrise is gearing up to be a treasure trove for book enthusiasts.

Rotary Club of Warwick Sunrise president Laureen Vanderwolf said she was excited to share her love for books with the rest of the community.

"It's a great fundraiser,” Ms Vanderwolf said.

"It earns us a lot of money that we use for the community and to help people internationally.

"This year we are hoping to use some of the money to create 10 little community libraries to place across town so people are able to take, borrow, swap and share their books.”

The books in the sale have been donated by generous residents and collected over 12 months.

"It's a huge community effort,” Ms Vanderwolf said.

"There is just something about a good old book sale and being able to look for the little elusive one that you can't find anywhere else.

"Sometimes people find treasures and it's really amazing.”

The sale is in its fourth year with hundreds of books in every category, all to be sold for under $2.

From travelling to gardening, and craft to children's books, there is a huge range of goodies including DVDs and CDs available to suit all kinds of quirky interests.

The sale is on from Wednesday through to Sunday, from 8am to 4pm at 50 Albion St, Warwick.

For those with a disability and who need some extra time to walk around to check out the amazing books, you can head down today before the crowds arrive tomorrow.
