a BOOK sale was held at the Strutts Centre in Belper on Saturday which raised over £300 towards the upkeep of the building.
Hundreds of fiction and non-fiction books were donated with prices as low as 50p for a paperback and £1 for hardback books.
Volunteer Joan Hardy said: “Strutts always welcomes donated books and we hold these sales regularly.
“Quite a lot of people came - obviously - because we sell the books very cheaply.
“All the money will go towards a new lift which will mean that people who can’t manage the stairs can then access the upper rooms.”
The lift appeal is part of an ongoing programme of works.
