The Rotary Club of Geelong West is once again hosting their major annual fundraiser, the Monster Book Fair.
Not only does the book fair offer books for just $2 (or even as low as $1 for children’s books), but all the proceeds from the fair go straight to good causes – meaning that you can purchase hours of entertainment for pocket change, and feel good while you do it.
Having been a large success in previous years, so far the annual book fair has raised tens of thousands of dollars that goes into the Rotary Club’s supported causes. These causes include but are not limited to; Barwon Health Patient Transport, Samaritan House, Operation Newstart, Christ Church Meals Program, Geelong Kokoda Youth Program and numerous smaller charity programs and organisations that receive grants each year.
Organising any fundraiser is always a feat, and the Monster Book Fair is no different, taking months of work with Rotary Club members sorting the books to make sure only the best is available.
With thousands of books on offer, across almost all possible genres, there is bound to be something to impress even the most demanding of readers. With entry at just a gold coin donation, and books for ridiculously cheap prices, it is definitely worth heading down to the Geelong West Town Hall from Friday March 2 to Sunday March 4 from 9am to check out the fair.
If the cheap prices and social benefits are not wonderful enough, there is also the added bonus of book fairs being environmentally friendly. Purchasing books at the Monster Book Fair helps to recycle books and prevents them from being sent to landfill, helping reduce waste and thus benefiting the environment. Win, Win, Win!
If you want to pick up some new reading material, help someone who is suffering illness, disadvantage or hardship, and help save the environment head down to the Rotary Club’s Monster Book Fair to pick up a book (or ten) and help make a change.
