While we are now still in Covid Level 2, the Tauranga Rotary Book Sale at Harvard Way Mount Maunganui cannot be open Friday 5th or Saturday 6th March.
But since we will drop to Level 1, we will definitely be open on Sunday 7th March from 9 am until 5 pm, and also the following weekend, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th from 9am until 5pm.
What a great opportunity to come and restock your bookshelves, while also helping worthwhile causes in your local community! If you have been here before, you will know it is well worth a visit, because we have 1000s upon 1000s of books. It is really easy to find your favourites since the nonfiction is sorted by topic and the fiction is sorted by author!! We also have jigsaws, and games, cds and dvds and art.
Hope to see you there!
If necessary, please contact Ann Pritchard on 07 543 5350.

Take these four simple steps to ensure that blind and curtain cords/chains are out of reach of children, particularly from children under six.
1. Check your blind and curtain cords
• Check for loose or looped cords that your child can reach from the floor or by climbing on furniture.
• Immediately tie cords out of reach and move away any furniture children might climb on to reach them.
• Do this anywhere you are staying, including on holiday.
2. Secure your cords out of reach
• Buy cleats or tensioning devices for securing cords from a hardware store or curtain and blind shop.
• Use screws to fix each cleat or tensioning device in a place that is out of reach of children.
• Never secure these devices with materials that may fail when a load is placed on them, such as double-sided tape or glue.
• If you cannot fix your unsafe cords and chains out of reach yourself, get a reliable tradesperson to do it for you. If you are renting your home, seek help from your landlord or agent.
3. Choose safe blinds and curtains. Buy new curtains and blinds which:
• comply with the national mandatory standard
• have warning labels to remind you of dangers to children
• provide a way to secure cords/chains so there are no loops or strands that children can reach, or
• operate without exposed cords/chains.
4. Keep children away from all cords/chains
• Move anything a young child can sit in, stand or climb on (like cots, highchairs, beds, sofas, tables, chairs and bookshelves) away from cords/ chains—even those tied around a cleat, as your child may be able to untie them.
• Do not let children play near cords/chains they can reach.
• Never leave children alone in a room with cords/chains they can reach.
