Book Fair

Lifeline South Coast's Big Book Fair

Packing and sorting is well under way for our next Big Book Fair event in March 2020. We will have 80,000 books packed, individually priced and on display for our customers in over 50 categories. Eftpos will be available for book purchases. Floor plan will be available soon. 

We have a great range of books in our Something Special section. A list of available books in the Something Special range will be available soon.

We hope you can join us Friday 20 & Saturday 21 March from 9am to 5pm and Sunday 22 March from 9am to 4pm. Illawarra Sports Stadium, Berkeley.
