Book Fair

Lifeline South Coast's Big Book Fair

Plans are well under way for our next Big Book Fair event in March 2019. We will have 80,000 books packed, individually priced and on display for our customers in over 50 categories. See floorplan here

We have a great range of books in our Something Special section. See a list of available books over $100 here.
