The Annual Hamilton Rotary book fair is a Waikato institution. Each year, thousands of books, DVDs, CDs, records, magazines, jigsaws and games get recycled to raise funds for the community.
Traditionally, the book fair has been a three or four day mega-event at the Te Rapa racecourse, but 2020 needs to be different.
This year's book fair will be smaller, better-spaced and easier to navigate. The fair opens Friday evening and runs through to Sunday lunchtime with a one-room operation for safer, managed traffic flows, better sorting of fiction and online options for items of special or national interest.
