This will be an opportunity for those interested in history and heritage, as well as the general population who are interested in books and reading, to snap up some great deals.
It is being organised by Kildare County Library and Arts Services in conjunction with the Co. Kildare Federation of Local History Groups. According to Local Studies Librarian, Mario Corrigan, “There is an enormous interest in Dublin and other areas in this sort of event and after the success of the first six County Kildare Book Fairs 2006 – 2011 we in County Kildare are looking forward to the event.”
It is free and open to all and there will be ample opportunity for people to browse the books on offer. “The idea is to give people an opportunity to buy good quality history books on a range of subjects at bargain prices. The material will go to people who appreciate it,” said Federation Secretary, James Durney.
“It will be an immensely pleasurable experience, whereby people can browse the tables at their leisure and hopefully they will find a little treasure or a copy of that elusive title they have been searching for,” said President of the Co. Kildare Federation of Local History Groups, Barry Walsh.
So why not take an afternoon break on Sunday 14 October and come to Newbridge Library to the County Book Sale – maybe in search of a unique gift or just to enjoy the experience.
The Sale is being run in tandem with the Kildare Reader’s Festival – please drop in.
