The event, hosted by the Rotary Club of Alexandra, is into its 32nd year and has so far raised $500,000 for local and international causes.
It is something members have been only too happy to organise, year after year.
Each Monday a group of organisers sort through the range of titles donated and store them according to category, of which there are many, from cooking and history to travel and children’s titles.
Collectables are also in the mix along with CDs, DVDs and magazines.
Co-organiser Mike Rooney said about 80 large wooden cases, which the club acquired from the Roxburgh hydro refit, were used to transport the many books to the Alexandra Community Centre where the sale would take place from January 1 to 4.
Doors will be open from 9am to 5pm each day.
