Due to an abundance of supply there will be two Book Fairs in 2016 with a book fair to be held over the long weekend in March (12 - 14 March). We will also have our traditional August book fair over three days commencing Friday 19th August. Both fairs will be held at the Geelong West Town Hall.
Geelong Book Fair
The success of the Rotary Club of Geelong West’s annual Book Fair, usually held in August each year, has prompted the Club to double the opportunity for the community to purchase from the biggest variety of secondhand books at the best prices possible, by scheduling two Fairs in 2016.
The first Book Fair for 2016 will be held at Geelong West Town Hall, opening on Saturday 12 March and the continuing on Sunday and Monday 13 & 14 March.
Club President, Jim Marendaz said ‘The Book Fair has become such a popular event and we have collected and sorted thousands and thousands of great books, in so many genres, and we want to give the community more opportunity to get their hands on the amazing book bargains on offer!’
The Club will have over 25,000 books for sale and all books will again be only $1.00 each. 
‘You you can go home with an armful of books for little cost while, at the same time, helping our Rotary Club to make a positive difference in our community.’ said Mr Marendaz.  ‘All funds raised go towards supporting meaningful community projects such as supplying the Barwon Health Foundation with patient transfer vehicles for treatments such as dialysis and chemotherapy, as well as financial grants for Operation New Start - an innovative re-engagement program for young people aged 14 -17 who are at risk.’
The Club has been sorting the books into the various categories and buyers can be assured that there are some exceptional bargains. 
Once again this year, the Rotary Club of Geelong West is grateful for the generous event support received from the City of Greater Geelong, Tuckers Funeral Service, Zippy Removals and Paul Bell Real Estate.
The Geelong Book Fair opens at 9.00am on Saturday 12 March.
