Help out at a Bookfest near you!

Good friends, good people, and good fun, too – our beloved Lifeline Bookfests have lots of opportunities for volunteers in communities across Queensland.

From sorting and pricing, to bumping in and bumping out, our amazing Lifeline Bookfest volunteers put their hands up to ensure each of these massive second-hand book sales runs smoothly. And that’s important, because Bookfests help to raise funds for our 24-hour 13 11 14 crisis line.

So, if you love books, why not get involved in the community, and make a difference to someone’s life by volunteering at a Bookfest near you?
