Lifeline Canberra’s Bookfairs raise a major portion of the funding needed to keep our local crisis support service running.
Our Bookfairs are the largest gathering of book-lovers in Canberra!
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.
Entry to the Lifeline Canberra Bookfairs is by gold coin donation.
The Collectors Room has first and limited editions, rare, old, fragile and collectable items – a wide range of adult and children’s books, also pamphlets, posters and ephemera, plus collectable vinyl records and music CDs. Children’s books also include gift quality stock as well as bookplates from vintage children’s books. Click here for details of some of the more valuable items available.
