Lifeline Canberra's Bookfairs are the largest gathering of book-lovers in Canberra and they raise a major portion of the funding needed to keep our local 13 11 14 crisis support and suicide prevention service available to the community.
Our main Bookfairs at EPIC offer over 250,000 donated items for sale. We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, including rare books and collectables, children's books, textbooks and foreign language books. You'll also find magazines and pamphlets, sheet music, comics, maps and atlases, talking books, records and CDs, DVDs, games and jigsaws.

Communities@Work Food Drive
We're proud to partner with Communities@Work to help support people experiencing hardship in our community.
At each Bookfair, we run a food drive and ask patrons to bring along some non-perishable food to donate (click here for some ideas).
You'll see the donation bins at the entrance to the Bookfair. If everyone brings at least one item, we can make a huge difference!
