Upcoming book sales in 2018 to look forward to are:
- 2018 Winter book sale and mini market – 30 June from 8am to 1pm
- 2018 Summer Book Sale and mini market – 1 December from 8am to 1pm
Book sales are an important source of funding for the Library, and book sales are held on a regular basis throughout the year.
Books which are no longer required for the collection, along with donated books, are sold in order to add to Library funds. At the half yearly Book Sale on the deck, fill a library bag of reading material for just $10. Support the volunteers’ cake and sweet stall. Enjoy barbecue brunch by Maleny Blackall Range Lions Club Inc. and sit with friends for tea or coffee. Catch up with friends and get to know the neighbours. All while you keep an eye out for special interest and old collectible books on the Collectors Corner stall.
A market atmosphere is created by mainly local stall holders with a range of products, which previously have included native plants, honey, beading, jewellery and essential oil skin care.
Everyday Book Shop
For those who miss the big sale and the market days, a selection of the best unsold books are available in our Everyday Book Shop at the Library. This provides an opportunity to purchase preread, discounted books at bargain prices to read or add to your collection.
- Collectible and Special Interest Items. A selection of collectible fiction and non fiction is also available in our Collectors’ Corner. These also make great gifts for book lovers.
Donations of used books in excellent condition are received all year round, and gratefully accepted.
Clean quality books which you would be happy to buy for yourself, your children and friends, are appreciated for inclusion into the general collection, or to help us raise funds. Bring donations into the Library during opening hours and please remember that mouldy and dilapidated items are not wanted by anybody: Unless they are rare!
