Discover Amazing Books and Make a Difference at the Rotary Book Fair

In the lead-up to our Book Fair, the Rotary Geelong West Team has been sorting through books from all genres, which will be available at incredible prices. In February 2024, over 2,500 people attended the fair over the weekend, raising over $25,000 for various charities. We continue to be thrilled with our results.

Our Book Fair is the major fundraising event for the Rotary Club of Geelong West. So far, we have raised over $150,000, which has been channeled into our supported projects such as the Barwon Health Foundation Project North Dental Clinic, Geelong Youth Engagement, Overseas Clean Water Programs, End Polio Now, and many other smaller charitable programs assisted by Rotary Club Grants each year.

We have thousands of books available from a wide variety of categories. All it takes to change a life is a gold coin donation on entry and a book purchase of $1 or $2 - nothing could be simpler!

Visitors to our Book Fairs will not only pick up a bargain, but they will also be helping us assist many people who benefit from what Rotary does, both locally and overseas. It’s a win-win! Our community Book Fairs help thousands of people suffering from illness, disadvantage, and hardship every year while also making an important environmental difference. Books are donated by hundreds of people in the region as well as the Geelong Regional Libraries Corporation, which has been a major contributor to the Book Fair for many years now.
