Our annual Book Fair is being held at the Tawa New World Mall spare shop over the weekends of 14/15 and 21/22 July 2017. This is an important event in the life of Tawa Rotary and now represents our largest fund-raising opportunity for charity.
Books can be dropped to the large bin that is placed for this purpose within the New World Mall north corridor. Or if donors would prefer to have the books collected then please forward the request to Doug Burrus (with a name, address and contact phone number).
For Tawa Rotarians who have books of their own for the Book Fair or who are holding stocks to contribute, then please bring them with you to one of the work bees.
Since 2003, the Rotary Club of Tawa has been running an annual book fair to raise funds for charity by collecting and offering thousands of books, DVD’s and CD’s for sale. Half of the profits have supported the North Wellington Life Education Trust. This is one of many projects to support our local community.
Tawa, Johnsonville and Plimmerton Rotary Clubs have worked together to support Life Education Trust (Wellington North). Unsold books from one book fair are transferred between clubs for other book fairs and are built up with further community book donations. .
Book Fairs are “true re-cycling operations” and all concerned are winners. The donors get rid of unwanted books, the buyers get bargains and the clubs/charities get funds – all the thousands of books sold at each fair keeping well clear of the rubbish tip.
