The University branch of Save the Children Australia will hold its annual book sale at The University of Western Australia’s Winthrop Hall, below the UWA clock tower, from Friday 16 August to Wednesday 21 August.

This year’s sale celebrates the centenary of Save The Children and remains the biggest second-hand book sale in Western Australia, with proceeds used to help support children from disadvantaged communities.

Thousands of donated books covering almost every topic imaginable will be available at discounted prices as well as sheet music, recorded music and DVDs.

The branch is helped by numerous volunteers who work throughout the year to prepare for the book sale including UWA students from the student branch of SCA, Uni Camp for Kids, UWA staff and families and other casual volunteers.

Anyone interested in volunteering at the book sale can email [email protected] .

For any enquiries phone Save the Children on 9267 3900.
