Book Lovers Lane Volunteers

Our volunteers are an integral part of Lifeline Canberra.

COVID-19 has changed our ability to hold our Bookfairs throughout 2020, and into 2021 so we have pivoted and opened up Book Lovers Lane. If you are interested in Volunteering please contact us here.

At the Warehouse

Volunteers are needed all year round at our book warehouse in Mitchell. If you have an interest in or love for books of any genre, this could be a great volunteer opportunity for you!

Roles include sorting, pricing and packing books and other materials such as CDs and DVDs, computer-based searches for our genealogy team and online store, and a variety of logistics and support tasks including taking donations. Please note a current WWVP registration is a requirement for all volunteers, and available opportunities vary due to our needs. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us here


At the Bookfairs

Usually up to 100 volunteers are needed to ensure that each Bookfair runs smoothly.

Jobs include setting up tables, moving boxes of books and other sale items, tallying purchases, taking payments, staffing the cloakroom and clearing at the end of each Bookfair.

We have a volunteer break room with tea, coffee, cakes, slices and lunch provided.
