So from a toddler to a senior citizen, whether you prefer a romance novel or crime fiction or historical novel, or even self-help books, we have it all available at our fair. Through our ‘Load the Box’ campaign, we want to encourage more youth to spend time away from their gadgets and instead immerse themselves in the wealth of knowledge that a book can offer”.
