A large range of books about Bromsgrove and the nearby area will be on sale at Bromsgrove Library in Stratford Road on Friday and Saturday November 28-29 and Friday and Saturday December 5-6. These will be new books where the book is still in print or 'nearly new' if not.
Local books are not readily available now as we have no bookshop in the town and the event offers a chance to buy some Christmas presents. There will be a wide range, including publications by The Bromsgrove Society and many other sources.
Copies of the new edition of The Bromsgrove Rousler make an ideal present for those now living away and postage is the same as a Christmas card.
If you come on November 28 or 29 you will be just in time to see the superb WWI display of great local interest in the library.

The Railwaymen's Graves were rededicated at a ceremony at St John's Church on 16 July 2014.
The graves commemorate Thomas Scaife and Joseph Rutherford, who were killed in an accident at Bromsgrove Railway Station in 1840 and are buried in St.John's churchyard.
The Bromsgrove Society made a donation towards the cost of restoring the memorial, which had deteriorated over the years. These unique gravestones are now returned to condition worthy of the men killed and may be viewed at the town's cemetery.
