Pearl Beach Progress Association's annual Easter Book Fair will be held for the 43rd time on Easter Saturday, April 20.
"As a significant event on the Pearl Beach yearly calendar, this year's annual book fair promises to be no exception," said association publicity officer Ms Lynne Lillico.
"The event is the association's largest single fundraising activity with proceeds going toward the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall repairs and upkeep," Ms Lillico said.
Book fair coordinator Ms Victoria Crawford said this year's event would have a book to suit all tastes and interests.
"We have thousands of books, general fiction, classics, crime and horror, travel, gardening, cooking, health, craft and art among others.
"Plus there are beautiful coffee table books and children's books and puzzles.
"There are also lots of CDs, DVDs and vinyl records."
Ms Lillico said: "The buzz of the crowd adds to the festive atmosphere, providing the perfect environment to search out those special book bargains."
The fair will also sell collectables with an array of items available for purchase.
"There will also be the traditional homemade cake stall and jams and the popular cafe on the back deck will be serving delicious refreshments and lunch at reasonable prices."
The Book Fair will run from 9am to 5pm at the Pearl Beach Progress Hall.
