The Rotary Club of Heretaunga presents
BOOKFEST 2016: GIANT CHARITY BOOK SALE
Saturday 7 May | 9am to 5pm
Sunday 8 May | 9am to 3pm
Bookfest has now become an annual event for many avid readers, the young and not so young, keen to store up on books for the coming winter and at the same time make a contribution towards many worthwhile community projects within the Hutt Valley and internationally.
Since its inception in 1995 in May each year several thousand people gather to browse over some 100,000 books, magazines, games, tapes, CD's and videos.
Bookfest is Heretaunga Rotary Club's major annual fundraising event. Many local businesses lend their support towards the organisation of BookFest resulting in a range of local community groups directly benefiting from this combining of community resources.
