It’s winter in Brisbane, so there’s no better time to snuggle up and read a good book, and what great timing with Lifeline Bookfest Brisbane fast approaching.
The huge Lifeline Bookfest event will be back at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 6 – 9 June 2015.
The event offers a vast array of books, CD’s, DVD’s, vinyl, puzzles, board games and stationery items for prices as low as a dollar.
Here you will find four kilometres of tables with millions of books in a variety of categories including mystery, fantasy, humour, crime, romance, non-fiction and fiction pre-loved second hand books.
“The January Lifeline Bookfest event was a massive success! We sold a record number of books over the 10 days and we are hopeful that this event will be the same. Money raised through Bookfests is used to continue to help save lives through programs such as 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line and post-disaster Community Recovery Programs in QLD” said Roy Frith, Lifeline Retail Manager.
“No Bookfest is the same. It’s different each time because we never know what books people donate. We also often receive many rare and first edition books which are sought after from all over the world. That’s why many of our loyal customers visit Lifeline Bookfest events all over Queensland. You’ll never know what treasures you might find,” said Roy.
“Everyone should experience a Lifeline Bookfest Brisbane. If you haven’t been to one before now’s the time. We invite you to come along to the June Bookfest and enjoy the experience of getting lost in the rush of finding a good story or that CD you’ve been searching for,” Mr Frith said.
There are a number of key things people can do to prepare for the Lifeline Bookfest according to Mr Frith.
“We encourage customers to prepare by getting there early and wearing comfortable walking shoes. Many regulars come prepared with empty suitcases and backpacks for ease of carrying their purchases home.”
“There are also limited numbers of trolleys available for hire, but they go very quickly, especially on the first couple of days as it is first come, first served,” he said.
Proceeds from Bookfest support Lifeline services such as the 24 hour 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line. In Queensland Lifeline services and Shops are run by UnitingCare Community – a leading provider of community services and programs for individuals, families and children.
