The Te Anau Library is having a sale and everyone is invited.

The annual Friends of the Library Book Sale will be held this Queen's Birthday Weekend from 6pm on May 30 and 9am till 3.30pm May 31 at Real Journeys Events Centre Luxmore Dr, Te Anau.

The centre's event's floor will be laid out with tables full of second-hand books at low prices.

Friend of the Library Margaret Knowles said the Te Anau community always gets behind the sale.

Profits from the sale go towards upgrading the facilities, she said.

Previously this has included furniture, computers and photographs to decorate the Fiordland section.

The books in the sale are mostly donated by the public but some are extras from the library.

"We try not to throw any away."

The Te Anau Library upgraded its children's section using book sale funds, adding new bean bags, computers and puzzles.

"It's a good library, I'm quite proud of it actually," Knowles said.
