Charity bookshop moves

Millicent’s popular second-hand charity bookshop has moved for the sixth time.

It is now located in a portion of the former antique shop in George Street and opposite St Michael and All Angels Anglican Church.

For around a decade, the Lions Club of Wattle Range Lioness has run the bookshop and it has generated funds for community projects and charities as well as being a tourist attraction in its own right.

The bookshop is trading on four days per week but currently only has a limited stock on hand as it settles into its next home.

As the new location is being renovated, the club has asked for donations to be halted for the time being.

“Could you hold onto your literary treasures, dear bookworms?” a club spokesperson said.

“Our bookshop has embarked on a grand adventure and ended up in a shop under renovation.

“But before you start piling up those beloved reads for donation, hold that thought.

“We have got a bit of a Tetris puzzle happening with all our books.

“We’re juggling shelves, boxes, and tales, trying to find a cozy spot for every page-turner.

“As much as we adore your generosity, if it’s not too much trouble, could you hold onto those donations just a bit longer?

“We promise we’ll give them a warm welcome once the paint dries and the shelves find their perfect spots.

“Your novels, mysteries, and adventures will have their VIP entrance soon enough.”
