and Reading Program. “Pre-loved books will be free to concession card
holders, new books will be $5.00 only, while people without concession cards
can get second hand books for 20c paperback and 50c hardback.”
Annual book fair has been extremely popular and this year’s event will be
bigger, given all the support and number of books donated,” ECCWA president,
Kim Luby, said. “Our members and the community will surely enjoy this day.”
Terry Fewtrell, President of the Wattle Day Association adds that holding
the Book Fair on National Wattle Day means it should be a real celebration
of community, saying "The ECCWA's Book Fair is a great way to build
community. Linking the Fair with National Wattle Day and the celebration of
Wattle as the symbol of national unity, gives added expression to the
strength and diversity of the Australian community."
