Carlow Nationalist – The Lions Club book sale is back after a two-year hiatus

Lions Club members set up bookstore on Tullow Street

By Charlie Kegan

The CARLOW Lions Club Used Book Sale is back after a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19 restrictions. The book sale will start this Monday, March 21, at 140 Tullow Street (next to the Eir Phone Shop) opposite Shaws in Carlow town. The sale will continue for eight weeks and will be open Monday through Saturday each week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Thousands and thousands of good quality books are on offer, so the reading public is invited to come and sort out their summer vacation reading. As well as the exceptional value offered, customers will also be supporting the charities of the Carlow Lions Club. Every penny raised through book sales will go to local charities.

Children’s books are on sale for 50 cents each, or three for €1, and all other books, from encyclopaedias to novels, are only €1 each. All books are given away and stock will change all the time.

The project is organized by Lions Club members Frank Mulvey and Pat Doody, along with other members, and they have been busy collecting and arranging new inventory for sale.

The Lions Club would like to sincerely thank Laurence Phelan for her generosity in making her premises available for sale. The club also thanks everyone who donated books or helped the project in any way.
