Final FOILS book sale on at Ipswich Library

BOOK lovers will be able to re-stock their reading materials at this Saturday's Friends of Ipswich Library Service (FOILS) sale in the Ipswich Central Library courtyard.

Tourism and Libraries Committee Chairman David Pahlke said the sale of books no longer needed by Ipswich Libraries would be held from 9am-11.30am.

"This final sale of 2015 will provide people with the opportunity to browse and buy titles from surplus stock," he said.

"This is your chance to bag a book bargain."

Cr Pahlke said Ipswich Libraries regularly reviewed its resources and recycled surplus stock.

"Often multiple copies of a book are needed when a title is first released, due to demand, but as time goes on fewer copies are borrowed and the extras are no longer required," he said.

"Sale items will include a selection of fiction titles across all genres as well as a large range of non-fiction across all subject areas.

"Money raised will go towards events organised by FOILS, along with future activities."

FOILS is a group of enthusiastic community volunteers who work to support, extend and promote Ipswich Libraries.

Members meet from 5pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month in Study Room 2 on Level 1 of Ipswich Central Library, 40 South Street, Ipswich.
