Is your bookshelf filled with borrowed library paperbacks? You really should return them, you know. Do it this Saturday, September 1 and — provided you haven't racked up too many late fees — you can pick some books for keeps for as little as $1.
From 10am, Ashfield Town Hall will be filled with a tonne of pre-loved books from the Inner West Council's eight public libraries. Sift through dog-eared novels, laminated travel books and food-stained cook books. The best part? If you're a member of any of the inner west libraries — that's Ashfield, Dulwich Hill, Balmain, Haberfield, Leichhardt, Marrickville, Stanmore and Sydenham — the books will only cost you one buck. If you're not, you can join online, otherwise books will be $2 each.
