The Reader's Book Club was a local service where residents paid a small fee to join. This allowed them to borrow books at threepence each.
Our local Reader's Book Club was located on Forest Rd, next to Barter's store. Barter's was located at the bottom of the Forest Rd entrance to Hurstville Station.
Were you a member of the Reader's Book Club?
Do you remember when this service ceased?
If so, please let us know by leaving a comment below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

What young adult can forget the tale of Sarah (played wonderfully by Jennifer Connelly) whom wishes her little brother Toby away. Little does she know that the Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie - in tights!) hears her wish and grants it. Toby disappears, and Sarah must embark on a long journey through the labyrinth to the goblin castle at the centre in order to save her brother. Along the way she encounters goblins, fairies, moving walls, never-ending passageways, a giant furry creature named Ludo and a little worm wearing a scarf.
The world needs more of David Bowie in tights.
