Take leaf out of City’s book

Take leaf out of City’s book

READING enthusiasts will flock to South Perth and Manning libraries on Saturday October 19, to pick up ex-library and donated books.

As part of the Garage Sale Trail initiative, more than 400,000 Australians are coming together to buy, sell and re-use at more than 15,000 garage sales.

Last year, 2650 residents in the City participated in the Garage Sale Trail, with 111 local sales.

South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty challenged residents to beat those numbers this time around and was pleased the City had engaged in the initiative through its book sale.

“Isn’t it amazing to think almost 50 per cent of people who purchased on the trail had never bought second-hand before?” she said. “I personally love to find a bargain, I love this event, and the opportunity to do a good clean out,” Mayor Doherty said.”

“Not only is Garage Sale Trail great for helping achieve our recycling goals, it brings the community together.

_“I really support getting to know your neighbours, and Garage Sale Trail is a great way to encourage that. I have been a strong advocate for this event and pushed for the City to adopt it back in 2015, and am so happy to see it continuing to grow.
