UWA has extended the agreement with Save the Children (UWA Branch) to support their annual book sale for the next three years.
“The Save the Children book sale is an event loved by our students, staff and the wider community, and we are pleased to continue our partnership to support this important fundraising effort,” says UWA Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Community and Engagement) Kent Anderson.
Ten thousand people are expected to visit the book sale hunting for bargains and finding hidden treasures which will take place from 19-24 August in the Undercroft.
Anthea Fellows, President UWA Branch of SCA says the UWA Save the Children book sale, now in its 52nd year, keeps going from strength to strength.
“We are looking forward to this year’s sale and thank the University for their continued support,” says Anthea.
“We’re excited to be using a building on UWA’s Claremont campus as our central sorting house. We’ve already started sorting books and want people to know that we’re open for book drop offs too.
“If you have good quality books you’d like to donate we’d love to see you. We also happily take DVDs, CDs, LPs, and sheet music.”
It is expected around 120,000 books will be sold during the sale.
The Claremont book depot is open for book drop offs Tuesday-Friday, 9am-12pm, and on Sunday from 2pm-4pm at Building 13, Goldsworthy Road (Agett Road end).
