Easter book fair held for 41st time
The Pearl Beach Easter Saturday Monster Book Fair will be held for the 41st time from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, April 15, in the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall.
"Come along and have some fun searching for that special book, and enjoy the carnival atmosphere," said Pearl Beach Progress Association publicity officer Ms Lynne Lillico.
Titles will include educational, cooking, gardening, art, travel and hundreds of novels.
"This year we have a residents' recommendation table which will provide a wonderful guide to enjoyable reading," Ms Lilico said.
"As usual, there will be a Childcare's Corner with picture books through to novels for young readers," she said.
"We have collectables table with exciting treasures, and pre-loved items.
"Let's not forget the homemade cake and jams stall, also potted plants.
"The cafe on the back deck will serve refreshments and lunch at reasonable prices and there will be a raffle of a terrific hamper."
She said music lovers and collectors would find a variety of 12-inch vinyl albums for sale.
"Origins of the book fair were to raise funds toward the upkeep of the Crommelin Native Arboretum, with a table of books outside the local shop.
"Over the years and due to the increase in book donations and community interest, the event was moved into the Memorial Hall.
"This year we are delighted with the generous donations, making it the biggest and best ever.
"The Pearl Beach community owns the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall, and proceeds from the event now ensure that the hall is maintained and in good repair for all to use and enjoy."
The book fair takes place from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, April 15, in the Memorial Hall at 9 Diamond Rd, Pearl Beach.
