Book lovers get ready for Bookfest 2014

BOOK lovers everywhere can look forward to the Zonta Club Warwick's Bookfest 2014.

With hundreds of second-hand titles expected to be in stock, organisers are hoping to sell out on the day.

All money will go towards formal uniforms from the Warwick High School uniform pool.

The pool gives students who don't have their own uniform the choice of borrowing one for the school's major ceremonies.

"It's for the end of the year when awards are given out," Zonta club member Rhonda Betts said.

The group came up with the idea a few months ago and sprang into action with their book fair fundraiser.

"We heard some of the children weren't coming to collect their awards because they didn't have a formal uniform," Rosa Hardy said.

"As a group we thought everyone deserves that opportunity," she said.

The group has asked anyone in the Warwick community to donate unwanted books to be sold at the book lovers' fair.

"If anyone has books that they don't mind going to another book-loving family, please drop them off," Rhonda said.

Donations can be dropped off all next week at Betta Bilt and the Warwick Daily News during business hours.
