Lifeline Canberra have made the decision to close the warehouse and the donations facility, given the current risks associated with COVID-19.

We are extremely thankful to all those who have reached out over the past few months and soon we will be able to open donations back up. Please keep up to date via this page and donating books for announcements. Once again thank you for supporting Lifeline Canberra.


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.
