In each odd-numbered year, the Friends conducts a Book Fair.This is a sale of second-hand books, rare books, records, CDs, DVDs, sheet music, etc. Books include texts, Australiana, art, medical, engineering and commerce. etc. The Friends depends on donations of books, etc, to provide the stock for the Fair.
DONATIONS TO THE BOOK FAIR
The collection point for donations is now the Friends’ Place in HG06 which is under the Hunter Building at the end of Hunter Lane. The turn off to Hunter Lane is opposite the new student accommodation buildings, on the ring road. We have just uploaded the new map.
The Friends Book Place is open 9 am to noon on every Tuesday for deliveries.
Rare Book Auction
A feature of the Book Fair is the Slow Auction of Rare Books. Specially selected items are catalogued and prospective purchasers are able to make bids throughout the Fair, with a formal auction terminating the process on the last day.
Book Fair Proceeds
Over the past ten years a number of projects has been funded by the Friends.
