Book sale starts today

Organisers of Cromwell's Rotary Club Book Sale say they are grateful for book donations from local residents.

Rotary Club of Cromwell have been assembling a wide selection of books for their book sale, which begins today.

The Cromwell Bowling Club has been converted into a mini library for the two-day event.

Event organiser and Rotary Club of Cromwell member Pam Broadhead said the event was geared towards holidaymakers looking for a bit of "time out."

"There's a big range," Mrs Broadhead said.

"It's a good opportunity for people who are here over the summer to see the books we collect from the community."

The majority of titles cost $2 but those in the "treasures" selection cost about $8-$10.

"We would like the hall empty of books by Saturday afternoon if possible," Mrs Broadhead said.

The book sale raised just under $5000 last year.

Proceeds are to be given to community projects.

Elsewhere, Roxburgh is hosting its annual book sale which is also open today and tomorrow.
