Popular book sale on again

by Anonymous Author

The Lincoln Scout Group is on a book hunt.

The group is holding a fundraising book sale this month and is on the search for books looking for a new home.

Lincoln Scouts fundraising coordinator Gary Wallace said the sale is being held on Friday May 19 and Saturday May 20 at the Scout Hall on North Belt.

“The group is currently accepting donations of good quality books, so now is the time to clear out those bookshelves.

“Books can be dropped at the hall and we are more than happy to pick up around the township if people have a larger quantity of books to donate.” 

Mr Wallace said all funds raised through the book sale are used to support Scouts and Scouting activities in Lincoln and has become a very popular event. “Our hall will be jam packed with thousands of books for people to peruse and purchase at bargain prices. All books are $2 and some children’s books are even cheaper.” 

He said they are also looking for people to help with the sale.

“Anyone who may enjoy being surrounded by thousands of books may be able to donate some time to assist with the sorting of books pre-sale or on the weekend. We would be happy to hear from them.”

The sale runs from 6pm to 8pm on Friday, May 19 and from 9am to 1pm on the Saturday.
