The ANU Centre for Continuing Education is proud to support the work of Lifeline Canberra. CCE is all about lifelong learning and the betterment of our community. The Lifeline Bookfairs are a great way to engage in learning while helping to raise funds for the crisis support phone lines here in Canberra. 

Lifeline Canberra exists to support people in crisis and save the lives of those experiencing thoughts of suicide. For over 46 years, Lifeline's highly skilled volunteers have provided 24/7 support via their local 13 11 14 crisis support service. Lifeline Canberra telephone crisis supporters listen with care and acceptance, whatever the circumstance, and provide support and information to people in need.

Lifeline Canberra Bookfairs

Entry to the Lifeline Canberra Bookfairs is by gold coin donation.

Our main Bookfairs at EPIC offer over 250,000 donated items for sale. We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, including rare books and collectables, children's books, textbooks and foreign language books. You'll also find magazines and pamphlets, sheet music, comics, maps and atlases, talking books, records and CDs, DVDs, games and jigsaws.

Lifeline Canberra's Bookfairs are the largest gathering of book-lovers in Canberra and they raise a major portion of the funding needed to keep our local 13 11 14 crisis support and suicide prevention service available to the community.
