Our Giant Charity BookFest

Thank You

To all who supported Bookfest 2019.

The gross amount taken was over $80,000.

Bookfest 2020 is planned for the first weekend in May.

Browse the biggest pre-loved book sale that you are likely to ever see!

BookFest is our annual, major fundraiser that generates well-over $60,000 in funds that we use directly in support of our charitable purposes. The work of the club is to support Youth, Community and International projects as described elsewhere on our site.

Apart from the fundraising aspect BookFest itself is a community service project making the reading of books available to all families at a price they can afford.

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.

We Need Books!

To ensure a successful BookFest for all, we need lots and lots of preloved books . . .

Books for the young and not so young, soft cover and hard cover, fiction and non-fiction, books for children, books about animals and art, cooking. DIY, health and fitness, home & garden, hobbies & crafts, military and music...the list is endless but all you can donate will surely be appreciated.

We will be collecting books, plus magazines, games, tapes, CD's and DVD's & Vinyl LPs from late January.
