For Immediate Release
April 22, 2016 – Book Lovers Rejoice! The Bible Hill Kinsmen, in partnership with NovelTea Bookstore Café, are proud to continue a decade’s long community tradition and will be hosting a book fair this Spring. On June 3rd and 4th, the 1st Annual Colchester Book Fair will assume the annual book sale that was previously run by the Canadian Federation of University Women. Proceeds from the event will support the Colchester East Hants Library Foundation and other Kinsmen community projects.
“Members of our club were very excited to hear that a worthy organization like the Kinsmen has stepped forward to carry on the fundraising legacy of CFUW Truro,” said Corinne Cameron, local CFUW member. “It is fitting that we pass the sale to a group that values literacy and supports charities and organizations that enrich our community.”
With the recent news of the sale discontinuing after 51 years in the community, NovelTea Bookstore Café owner, Jeremy DeVito knew this was something that needed to live on in the community.
“I felt strongly that NovelTea should step up to the challenge of continuing the tradition from which we have benefited and received such enjoyment in the past,” said DeVito. “We’re proud to partner with a community-minded organization like the Bible Hill Kinsmen on this event.”
The sale will continue to be a two-day event. It will take place on Friday, June 3rd, from 6 to 9 pm, and again on Saturday, June 4th, from 9 am to 4 pm. It has relocated to the Eagles Landing Building at 510 Prince Street (former MacQuarries Pharmasave location).
“As with so many of our other events, we wouldn’t be successful without the support of the local community,” said Drew Douglas, President of the Bible Hill Kinsmen. “In the weeks leading up to the event, we’re asking the public to donate their books, comic books, games, puzzles, DVDs and CD’s and records at one of our six dropoff locations around town.”
