Thank you to everyone who joined us at Lifeline's Shoalhaven Big Book Fair in June.
The 3-day event, held at the Shoalhaven Basketball Stadium in Bomaderry raised an incredible $47,000 for Lifeline South Coast services including our 24-hour telephone crisis support service on 13 11 14.
A massive thank you to our volunteers who worked at the event - we simply couldn't do it without you!
Plans are well underway for Lifeline's October 2017 Big Book Fair, taking place at the Illawarra Sports Stadium in Berkeley between 9am and 5pm on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st October and between 9am and 4pm on Sunday 22nd October.
We aim to have 80,000 books sorted and packed by our hard working volunteers which will be displayed in more than 50 categories. As usual, there will be something there for everyone, no matter what their interest may be: fiction; non-fiction; reference; hobbies; travel; children’s books; art; science; literature; history; biographies; old, rare or just interesting.
Entry is by a gold coin donation and eftpos is available for purchases.
Floorplan will be avilable here soon.
Books can be donated year round at either the Wollongong Lifeline Shop or your closest Southern.IML Pathology collection centre (Helensburgh to Milton centres only - see locations). Selected Wollongong and Shellharbour City Libraries are also acting as collection points.
Would you like to join us as a volunteer? We need people to:
- Set-up and pack-up the event
- Provide customer service and information
- Work on the tally tables (helps if you are good with numbers)
- Complete exit interviews
If you think you can help, download the information booklet and application form from the volunteer with us page.

- Wave FM

- Southern IML Pathology
- Snap printing
- Wollongong City Council Libraries (selected) act as book donation points
