People browse books at the book fair. Picture: LIZ FLEMINGTENS of thousands of books were sold at the Y Service Men’s Club book fair over Easter.
Adults, teenagers and children spent hours browsing the aisleswhile volunteers worked tirelessly sorting the booksinto genres andlaying them out on trestle tables.
Clemence Due, from Adelaide, said she grew up in Bendigo and would attend the book fair every year.
“I have been going since I was young, so maybe 25 to 30 years,” she said.
“I love books, the range is great and they are very affordable. I get excited when I make a good find.”
The event is the club’s biggest, annual fundraiser – with money raised donated back into community projects and organisations.
Organiser Colin Lambie said the book fair attracted thousands of people, with the biggest drawcard being the price.
“We sold them for a couple of dollars. They are so cheap,” he said.
Any books left unsold by the end of Monday will be recycled. The fair is on at the Tom Tweed YMCA Stadium.
