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. If you have an interest in or love for books, this could be a great volunteer opportunity for you!

Roles include sorting, pricing and packing books, computer based searches and record keeping, and a variety of logistic and support tasks. If you are interested in Volunteering please contact us here


At the Bookfairs

Due to COVID-19 we are unable to hold our Bookfairs at the moment.

However 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.
