The Lifeline Bookfest is bookworm bliss – a second-hand book sale for book-lovers young and old. These reader roundups run throughout the year in communities across Queensland, drawing new and dedicated Bookfestians with the promise of lots of pre-loved books for sale at great prices.

Each event is a chance to spread our love of reading far and wide, save books from landfill and raise vital funds for Lifeline. What’s more, your second-hand book purchases help to deliver essential crisis support and suicide prevention services within the community.
