Bargain Books for Charity A Guilt-free Indulgence

Fiction books

Bring a big bag. That's the condition of entry, according to Lions Club volunteers.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a very passionate Volunteer, Ian. 'You can't go in, your bag isn't big enough' he tongue-in-cheek informs us. Never fear, behind the counter they had plenty of spare big green bags, ensuring you won't leave empty handed.

The Lions Club book sale in Glen Waverley is a great opportunity to pick up a bargain, or 10. The books are all in great condition, the majority of them new. Prices start from 50 cents for kids books and range to $3.50 for big hardcovers.

Community centre

All the money raised from the sale goes to charity. The Lions Club work especially close with special needs children around the community. So you can be sure the proceeds are put to good use.

There are over 8000 books and all Fiction are categorised alphabetically, ensuring easy access to your favourite authors.

There are also thousands of Non-Fiction titles sorted categorically.

All books are graciously donated from bookshops and happy customers returning their prior purchases and going home with new ones.

The Volunteers work extremely hard, and are very proud of all of their work. They are also modest when it comes to their achievements. Some, like Ian, have spent many years dedicated to their volunteering and others like Marty have just started.

They are always looking for more Volunteers, so feel free to look further into their website for more information. Lions Club Wheelers Hill

This is definitely a sale not to be missed by any avid reader.

I had no issue in filling my big bag full of some great classics, at a bargain price.

The sale happens twice a year, with the possibility of a third sale this year.

If you have any spare books you would like to donate, please see their website for details.
