Book sale opens in BOPSave
By Jaden McLeod
Book lovers from across the region lined up hours ahead of the Easter weekend opening of a popular annual book sale.
Organised by the Tauranga Rotary Club for over thirty years, the sale has become one of the largest in the country.
"The range that is available here, particularly in the technical side, is quite amazing. And the volume of books that we get for the public - is also amazing."
As the clock struck nine, the doors opened and eager customers raced to find their bargains.
Spokesperson Ann Pritchard says thousands of books were packed into this year's venue - with the help of fellow Rotarians and volunteers from the community.
"They're a wonderful group of people, and we couldn't do the book sale without the volunteers."
91-year-old Len Speir has been involved with the club since before the book sale even began.
