Save the Children is the largest aid and development agency dedicated to helping vulnerable children in Western Australia and overseas.

To raise vital funds for Save the Children, the 58th University of Western Australia Book Sale will be held under the clock tower from 13th to 18th August 2021. Entry is free.

Thousands of preloved books of exceptional quality have been generously donated to Save the Children and will be available for sale at reasonable prices.

There are over 50 categories to choose from - highlights include:

Rare and valuable

Folio Society Editions

Children's books

Fiction: hardback, softback, classic, prize-winning and speculative


Western Australiana


Australian History

Natural history



Mind, body and spirit

Sciences and Mathematics

Food and wine


Travel guides

Ephemera, postcards, bookmarks etc.

Complementing the large range of books is a selection of sheet music, CDS, DVDs and LPs.

PLUS on the weekend, a Flash Sale will also be held in the Hackett Cafe next door to the Hall. Expect an Aladdin's cave of rare and collectable and high-end books, collections of children's and reference books, Folio Society books, and games and jigsaw puzzles.

With 70% of the funds raised going to Save the Children programs in Western Australia, including in Armadale, Gosnells, Kununurra and the Dampier Peninsula, this is a great way to grab a bargain and help the local community.
