The Big Lions Book Fair collection box is now back in its familiar spot at Coastlands at the Robert Harris entrance off Rimu Road.
The box has been a familiar sight over many years and its reappearance marks the start of the
2018 collection for the Lions Monster Bookfair, which will be held at Waikanae on 13 and 14 October.
Committee chairman Lion Peter Cresswell says this year marks the 21 st consecutive Bookfair and the five Lions Clubs of Paraparaumu and Waikanae are again asking the community to go through their bookshelves, cupboards and basements for quality surplus reading others will enjoy.
He says the Kapiti community annually donates some 60,000 books and last year, through the
public’s generosity, they were able to donate $30,000 to deserving organisations.
