Zonta’s bookfest will have thousands of title on offer

BOOKWORMS in the Rose City will enjoy spending hours flicking through a sea of books at the Zonta Club Bookfest tomorrow, with thousands of books across all genres up for grabs.

Priced from just 20 cents each, there's bound to be a book for everyone at tomorrow's sale.

The bookfest is being held to aid the Zonta Club which helps supply formal uniforms to girls at the Warwick High School whose families struggle to afford them.

Zonta Club member Rhonda Betts said the sale has been well supported, with piles of book donations.

"We've been ecstatic - we're pleased with the array of books," she said.

"I simply can't tell you how many thousands of books we have here."

The group came up with the concept of the bookfest several months ago and sprang into action, encouraging residents to donate their unwanted books for a good cause.

Mrs Betts said bookfest had everything from children's books to encyclopaedias.

"Come along and buy some cheap, well loved books," she said.

As well as books, the Zonta Club will also be selling drinks for $1 each.

The bookfest will be held in the vacant Betta Bilt Cabinets store next to the Daily News office on Albion St, and runs from 8.30am to noon.
