Bookfair volunteers

Our Bookfair volunteers are an integral part of Lifeline Canberra.

Without this support throughout the year, the Bookfair event could not happen, and we could not raise a major portion of the funding needed to keep our local crisis support service running. See how you could help below.

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.


At the Bookfairs

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.
