Bargain Book Shop - Palmerston North Book Sale alternative!
We are excited to announce that we are officially opening our Bargain Book Shop. This shop is an alternative to the cancelled Book Sale that was set to take place on 4 - 6 September.
Unfortunately, the Palmerston North Book Sale is unable to operate under the Alert Level 2 restrictions, which we are still currently in until 11.59 pm on Sunday 6 September.
This was an incredibly hard choice for the branch to make, as this is the second time we had to change the date. We know that this will also come as a huge disappointment to the hundreds of book lovers who eagerly await the annual book sale.
A massive thank you to our team of volunteers who have spent several months preparing for this book sale, with 100,000 books being carefully sorted.
