The Lifeline Bookfair is a huge book sale that is held throughout the year in two large venues - alternating between the south side and north side of Canberra. It costs a gold coin to get in and then you browse the aisles, with literally thousands of book titles to choose from. It is not just books that you will find there - also look for maps, posters, magazines, sheet music, DVD's, CD's, board games, puzzles, books in other languages and more.

Take your own bags to fill up (or buy them for $3 at the venue) and when you have made your selection, head on over to the exit to pay for your books - which are all reasonably priced. The best part? All the money goes to Lifeline, to help them pay for their 13 11 14 crisis number, which helps people all across the community. The whole Bookfair experience is a fun way for the community to support Lifeline - and score some great books in the process!

The books for these book fairs have all been generously donated by the local community. If you would like to donate books or volunteer to work at the fairs on the day, then see the Lifeline website or contact them for more information.

These popular events are a highlight on the calendar of many Canberrans. I personally love going to these book fairs for children's books, educational books, cooking books, and finding obscure books that you would never find anywhere else. Who knows what treasures you will find, when you start looking through the very first box?
