Our largest Bookfair yet!

Booklovers from across the Nation’s Capital are eagerly awaiting the weekend when they can browse Canberra’s biggest book collection at the Lifeline Canberra EPIC Bookfair!

With books, games, DVD’s, stamps, maps, magazines and so much more the Lifeline Bookfair is almost bursting at the seams with 201 pallets unloaded and unpacked ready to for our biggest Bookfair yet!

Inviting all Canberrans to visit the Bookfair on Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday (13, 14 and 15 September), at Exhibition Park in Canberra. Lifeline Canberra CEO Carrie Leeson said every book purchased contributes vital funds to support vulnerable people in our community.

“It costs $26 to take a life-saving call in our telephone crisis support centre. At our Bookfair, this equates to around a handful of books, so every purchase is valuable,” Carrie said.

“At our September Bookfair, we are also thrilled to have a family day on Saturday supported by Icon Water, which is dedicated to bringing the Canberra community together for a fun day out”
