ROTARY Club of Invercargill president Neil Boniface and Book Sale Committee member Richard King hit a milestone this week after sorting more than 400 boxes of recycled books for the Rotary Book Sale.

The Civic Theatre in Invercargill will open to the public from 4pm today till Sunday. The club celebrates its 39th year running the event since the first sale in 1980.

A first for the event, plastic bags have been replaced by Pak ‘n Save reusable bags which would be available for $1 each.

Bookworms were also encouraged to bring their own reusable bags to fill with quality, presentable books at bargain prices.

The major recipient of the proceeds this year was the Southland Cancer Society.
