A small team of volunteers has spent the last three weeks sorting books for the Rotary Club of Oamaru’s Bookarama.
It’s a big job – we advertised we’d be open for drop offs from 10 to 12 from Monday to Saturday and most days it’s been nearer 5pm that we’ve closed.
We have thousands of books, jig saw puzzles, CDs, DVDs, videos, games, magazines and a few other items we’re not sure how to categorise.
All have been donated and many of the donors have told us they’ll be back to buy replacements.
It’s a lot of work but worth it as it’s also a wonderful fundraiser and all the profit goes to community initiatives.
We open at 10am today and if the past is any guide, buyers will be queuing to get in for more than an hour before that.
For the next five days – and possibly longer as we clean-up – blogging will be light as Bookarama will take priority.
