Each year, the Lifeline Canberra Bookfair recycles up to 1 million books — many to our Bookfairs, many to other charities, and to paper recycling.
Your continuing donations help keep our Telephone Crisis Support Service 13 11 14 available to the community.
We accept all clean books (except Readers Digest Condensed books), comics, magazines and pamphlets, encyclopaedias (pre-1940 or the last 20 years only, please), sheet music, maps and atlases, calendars and postcards, stamps and trading cards, records, CDs, DVDs, talking books, puzzles, board games and models, collectable card games, war gaming and miniatures, computer software and games for current and historic operating systems. Materials in languages other than English are welcome.

We will communicate when the donations will recommence via all forms of social media, this is an unprecedented time, please take extra care of yourselves.
