The organisers of the 25th annual Alexandra Rotary book sale
are pleased with the final tally of $24,200.
Rotarian and book sale convener Ken Cook said first-day
takings were about $10,000 and were a good indication of the
final figure - usually they make double overall what they
make on the first day.
Between 40 and 50 tonnes of books were on sale at the
Alexandra Community Centre from Boxing Day to December 30.
All proceeds would go to Rotary, Mr Cook said.
Not all of the books were sold. Some of the remainders had
been taken to the Central Otago WasteBusters depot for sale
or disposal and others would be repriced for this year's
Rotary book sale.
