Bag a bag of books for $5
The Lilydale Library Winter Book Sale is on again. It's your chance to secure ex-library books almost cheaper than borrowing them, that is if you forgot to return them and cop a fine!

Read all about it.

There will be hundreds of books to choose from.

These not for sale, but may be in the future.

I asked library manager, Robin, if the criteria for selling ex-stock was, old, damaged, or never borrowed. She replied, "All of those plus having too many of the one title on the shelves. We also have to make space for new books."

Every book may have a shelf life.

The prices are better than op shops books prices. $1-00 per book, or bring a bag and fill it up for only $5-00. Could be some heavy reading there. The sale is on during normal library opening times.

A quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero adorns the end wall of the library. Cicero was a Roman statesman who was born in 106 BC.

Perhaps you should buy some gardening books.

There is ample parking in the Lilydale Lakeside Campus, which is set in large open space on the edge of Lilydale township and next to Lillydale Lake.

Come on in.

After buying your mini-library, adjourn to the adjacent "Point of View" café for a coffee, snack and the opportunity to start reading your newly acquired books.

If you are a bookworm, be early and you will get some.
