The Rotary Club of Mt Eden would love to have some paperbacks and jigsaw puzzles for the Mt Eden Corrections Facility, that meet the following guidelines - paperbacks only (no hardcovers) in very good condition – clean, with no loose pages and no yellowed/stained pages – in the following categories:
Fiction aimed at a male audience (currently NO general fiction, romance or books aimed at women):
  • Crime
  • Thriller
  • Historical
  • Sci fi & fantasy
  • Classic titles
Non-Fiction written for a general audience (as opposed to academic audience/textbooks):
  • History (NZ, Māori, war/military, ancient & general)
  • Self-help
  • Modern biographies & sport biographies
  • Cars & motorbikes
  • Meditation, yoga & mental wellness
Also wanted:
  • Books in a non-English language – especially Te Reo Māori or Portuguese (NO Chinese language books)
  • Dictionaries & thesauri (small or pocket-sized)
  • Colourful atlases (particularly small, slim or soft cover versions)
  • Jigsaw puzzles (with no missing pieces) – great for keeping restless minds busy
