Vintage Book Sale at the Ballarat Mechanics’ Institute

A Fundraising Event for the Ballarat Mechanics’ Institute.

Rare Book Week this year, runs from 18 July – 27 July, and to complement this, the BMI will be holding a book sale featuring a variety of vintage titles including fiction and non-fiction. These items are not only interesting content-wise, but are very visually appealing to anyone looking for interior design options, printed material to be recycled as the basis for art works or simply reading material in front of the open fire!

The items on sale are generally duplicates or things that don’t fit in the BMI Heritage Collection criteria.

This special event will offer items that are very reasonably priced, offering good value to collectors wishing to give these treasures a new home. The funds raised will go to the conservation and curation of the BMI collection and the maintenance of the building that houses the collection. They will run this event through the week unless sold out prior.

They are thrilled to be part of Rare Book Week and hope this book sale will bring many new faces into the BMI. Don’t miss this rare opportunity.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
