After Christmas, Lifeline was given so many books that it has decided to hold a grand sale.

Lifeline’s Communications Officer, Jonnah Ortega, said they had received about 10 times more books than they would normally get.

“It is a great thing, we are very appreciative,” Jonnah said.

“But due to the timing there are a lot of volunteers on holiday which makes it hard with the sorting process.

“We are under resourced at the moment, but it is a good problem to have.

“We would like to thank the community so we are having a book sale.

For just $5, you can fill up a bag of books.

“We know during holidays that the kids are home so this is a great way to give them something to do,” Jonah said.

The range of books is also vast - there everything from children’s books to adult titles.

“We are encouraging parents, grandparents, families, everyone to come down and purchases some books.

“All the donations have been so kind. We would like to thank Broken Hill for the continued support,” she said.

The sale starts today and will run for a week at the Lifeline store in Argent Street. It is open 10am - 3pm weekdays and 9am - 12pm on Saturday.
