Each event, over 400 volunteers help to make the Lifeline Bookfest happen, covering roles from sorting and pricing to packing and operating the registers. To volunteer at our next Bookfest, call Heather on 3632 1017 to register your interest or e-mail volunteer [at] uccommunity [dot] org [dot] au.

We wouldn’t have a Bookfest if it wasn’t for all the generous folk in Brisbane willing to share their knowledge! It is your generosity that makes the Lifeline Bookfest such a success.
We receive donations of books all year round. They flood in through the blue Lifeline donation bins that are scattered across Brisbane.
If you would like to donate books to the Lifeline Bookfest, you can take them to your nearest Lifeline bin or Lifeline shop.
Lifeline also offers a free pick up service for large donations, including donations of books. If you would like to clean out your shelves and help keep the Bookfest cycle going, call Lifeline to arrange a pick-up on 3632 1010 or alternatively call 3632 1000 to find your nearest Lifeline bin.
Why wait until the Bookfest to pick up a bargain? Lifeline has around 40 shops in and around Brisbane that specialise in clothes, furniture, collectables, high-quality products - even books! There is even a dedicated Lifeline Book Shop in Bulimba.
So don’t wait for the next Bookfest to roll around, pop into a Lifeline Shop and pick up what you need at a great price.
