2021 Book Emporium Grand Xmas Sale
The Museum is announcing its Christmas fundraiser with a huge bookselling event over almost three weeks in December.. Dates and times are: Monday 6/12 to Thursday 23/12 (except Sundays), from 9.00am to 4.00pm. Please note that during Museum closed-days, entry to the Book Emporium will be via the rear gate. See the Flyer below for more details.
[Donations of quality used books (reference books excepted) are always gratefully accepted.]
The Book Emporium has become a key source of fundraising for the Society, since it was opened in April 2014. Books can be viewed and/or purchased, by simply asking one of the volunteers, on duty during standard opening hours. Donations of good quality books can made during opening hours, and outside of those hours by simply placing on the trolley, to the left of the Staff Entrance, on the Verandah. We thank you for your generosity and support.
The Museum uses a range of methods to raise funds to support the development, maintenance and display of its collections. In addition to the Book Emporium, these include:
In addition, the museum is eligible to apply for grants from local, State and Commonwealth government and commercial organisations. In the recent past, such grants have enabled the following projects to be undertaken:
