Advance notice -  second hand book sale

If, like me, you are wondering what to do with books that you no longer refer to or no longer read, here is a solution.

Store them in a dry place and bring them to our second hand book stall that we plan to run at the AGM in March next year! 

All funds raised by the sale of books at the stall will benefit the centre funds and all the unsold books will go to local properties to sell on to interested visitors.

Your contribution will benefit an organisation you support. The properties keep all the funds they raise from their sale of books and we will arrange to take them there for you.

In addition to this, Centre members were involved in over 200 interesting and diverse second hand books being donated to Newark Park last month to re establish their second hand book sales area. It was closed by the water damage caused to the house as a result of severe weather last winter. We learnt about the history of, and developments at, Newark Park at the first lecture of this season's series at Bethesda.

The books, acquired as a result of a friend of a person's move to different accommodation, resulted in this generous gift to Newark Park. National Trust properties keep all the funds generated by book sales so it is another way to help them.

Whilst we do not expect such a big donation of books regularly, (they can cause a logistical problems), you can offer unwanted  books to our book stall at our AGM.

Thanks to all involved.
