The Rotary Clubs of Glenfield and Northcote have teamed up to bring new life to the annual Rotary Book Fair. The annual fundraising event has been run by the Northcote team very successfully for many years and the Glenfield team is hoping to build on this success to ensure the event has a great future. The fair is acknowledged as the largest in the area and one of the best quality fairs in the country.

The 2018 event will have a larger focus on local young families and kids’ books. New advertising material and a new marketing strategy have all been designed to target this new demographic. The aim of the new direction is to make sure that the Book Fair continues to stay relevant for years to come.
