National Aerospace Library Book Sale 24 May 2018

An  Aviation Book Sale is to be held at the National Aerospace Library  at Farnborough  on Thursday May 24  2018, 10:30 – 4:30pm. Entry is free and available for purchase on the day will be many 100s of new / second-hand donated books  and heaps of aviation magazines - a  wide range of  aviation history books, autobiographies, biographies, histories of  individual  aircraft  types  /  aircraft companies,  old  journals,  books on the  history of  RAF, technical textbooks etc. - a sheer abundance of aviation titles.   

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. This year we are continuing the funding for the archival conservation of a large collection of original Second World War aircraft identification posters.

Also on the day authors Peter Reese and Sharon Wright will be signing copies of their new books 
Transforming the Skies: Pilots, Planes and Politics in British Aviation, 1919-1940  and  Balloonomania Belles which were primarily researched in the Library and which have just been published.
 
As this event attracted a number of visitors last year, arrangements for additional parking have been made with Farnborough Business Park so that on the day there will be signed parking areas available for people to use on the hard standing outside the Q121 and R133 wind tunnel buildings, which are near to the end of The Hub building where the National Aerospace Library is located. No parking vouchers will be required to be displayed by visitors to the Book Sale who park in these designated areas which will only be accessible via North Gate Road alongside the BMW site on Farnborough Road.
