An opportunity to buy those Christmas presents for yourself you really do want or presents for other aviation enthusiasts.
Most of the books will be sold between £1.00 and £5.00 and the magazines will be 25p each or 5 for a £1.00; the money raised from the sale of these donated books will be used towards the conservation of historic aviation material in the Library’s archives.
