Librarian Melanie Bovey and library volunteer Gillian Futcher, both from the Marton Library, had the mammoth task last week of sorting out 5000 books for Saturday's book sale at the Bulls Town Hall.
The sale, with books from the Bulls, Marton and Taihape libraries, is held every couple of years. This year it was timed to be held in conjunction with the Bulls Library's 90th birthday celebrations.
In July, the Taihape Library will reach its centenary and the Marton Library will celebrate its 125th birthday in September.
All three libraries are operated by the Rangitikei District Council.
