The Japan Centre, Department of East Asian Studies, School of Culture, History ＆ Language, College of Asia & the Pacific, ANU, in conjunction with the ANU Japan Club and the ANU Kabuki Club, is planning to hold another “Japan-related Secondhand Book Sale”. The inaugural book sale was held in 2011 as a fundraising activity for people in Japan affected by the 3.11 earthquake and tsunami, and was such a great success that we plan to continue with them into the future.
Refreshments: Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be served along with cakes, sembei and gohan with furikake and misoshiru. (All proceeds will be treated as donations.)
Expected prices: Magazines&Manga ($1.00), Bunko-bon&Shinsho-ban ($2.00), Books&Monographs ($5.00-$10.00), CDs ($3.00), DVDs ($5.00), etc.
We would appreciate it if you could donate unwanted books, magazines, comic books, CDs and DVDs at any time before Friday 17 July. However, we would like to limit the offerings to Japanese-language material or material related to Japan in any language.
Please bring your donations to the “Yukari-no-ma (Tatami Room)”, Level 3, BPB (as above) by Friday 17 July. If you have many donations and they are too heavy to carry, please let us know and we will come to your place to collect them.
We are also seeking helpers before the sale to sort out books and other items as well as on the day of the sale both in the “Book Sale” section and “Refreshments” area. Those who are willing to help, please let us know. Please disseminate this notice widely amongst your family, friends, acquaintances and business colleagues.
We hope you will come and enjoy treasure hunting on the day of the sale. Bring your family members, friends and acquaintances, and escape inside from the cold weather.
