BOOKS and magazines spanning almost every subject drew crowds to Horsham College on Friday and Saturday.
The school’s biannual chaplaincy book fair featured thousands of titles, and raised about $4000 for the college chaplaincy program.
Chaplaincy committee president Yolande Grosser said the fair was well supported, and offered something for everyone.
“There is honestly a magazine or book for everything,” she said.
“Some people have certain collections and come looking for volumes they don’t have.
“We ran a cafe again out the front and a lucky draw. Those little things helped the fundraising total as well.
“Some people tend to spend hours at the fair, so it’s nice for them to have a breather and a cup of tea.”
The college’s food technology students cater for the cafe.
Mrs Grosser said crowds were down a little on the school’s May book fair, but the donations were as big as ever.
“We had such a massive response to our call for books that we weren't able to categorise them all for this fair, so the next event will be huge,” she said.
“We thank the community for their support in donating and attending, all the volunteers who make it happen, and the students at the college.
“It’s a really amazing effort.”
