We are rather short staffed for now because several of our Volunteers have understandably decided to be 'Socially Distant', though many of these ladies are collecting books to clean and sanitise at home.
The others of us are taking the best care we can of both you, our customers and ourselves, with hand sanitiser and gloves available on our desk.
We now have some new volunteers Welcome Chrissy, Vanessa & Peta.
A BIG Thank-you to ALL our volunteers

Donate to the REEA Foundation for Bookshop Credit
The Bookshop ladies are very worried that the REEA Hostel and its Residents will not be getting their usual funding from the Bookshop this month.
All the monies collected at the Bookshop from selling our books go directly towards the running costs of the Hostel.
24-hour nursing care and 3 meals a day are the bare necessities for our residents who have been locked down for more than two months already. Given the vulnerable status of our residents, pre-emptive lockdown was instituted as soon as social distancing was announced early in March.
We have reduced our opening times during the pandemic.
Now we will be open as follows:
From 9:30 - 13:00
We propose that if you EFT a donation to the REEA Foundation, bank details below, the Bookshop will send you a voucher to the value of your donation plus 10%, to be redeemed for books when the shop re-opens.
For this to work, you will have to send a proof of payment from your bank, and ALSO send us your e-mail address so that we can forward your voucher.
If you feel able, can you please find it in your hearts to donate to us.
