Tauranga Rotary Annual Book Sale dates changed this year to 8th - 10 March 2019 and began at 4.30pm with a long line of eager buyers waiting in the rain for the doors to open. Live entertainment and reading to the young ones was a great beginning.  During the next two days the many books, CD's, DVD's, magazines and records sorted for easy selection were taken home to new homes by very happpy bargin hunters.

We must thank a great number of our community who assit us in our annual book sale, one of the biggest recycling events in Tauranga:

  • Every year we are blown away by the generosity of our community, and their zealous support of our book sale, donating books etc and then coming to buy again and again, a very big thank you to you all
  • Seeka and their saff for again generously giving Rotary Tauranga the use of their cool store in Harvard Way for the six to eight weeks needed to collect and sort all of these donated goods. For the help their staff give us in moving and storing
  • The many volunteers and club members who arrive each day, year on year, without whom we could not get through the large amount of work to be ready on the day

  Our 33rd book sale has finished for another year and now we look forward to donating the monies raised back into our community, both local and further afield.
