Bare shelves for Lifeline Book Fair: can you help?

Lifeline Northern Beaches is urgently seeking further support from the community through the donation of books for Lifeline’s famous Book Fairs.

There are four GIANT Book Fairs held each year on the Northern Beaches, and all funds raised are spent on local services, such as counselling, support groups and financial counselling.

“We have always been wonderfully supported through donations of great quality books,” says David Thomas, CEO of Lifeline Northern Beaches.

“At the present time, our Book Depot is experiencing a drop-off in the number of donations so we are asking our community to keep Lifeline Northern Beaches in mind if they are looking for somewhere to donate books.”

Lifeline Northern Beaches are welcoming donations of all types of books, from paperback fiction to hardcover non-fiction, plus games, DVDs and CDs. Donation depot is at 18 Roger St, Brookvale – opening hours 8.30am-12.30pm.

The next Lifeline Northern Beaches Book Fair will be held at St Augustine’s College in Brookvale from 6-9 July. Find out more: www.lifelinenb.org.au/book-fairs

Support quality local news

Manly Observer is an experiment in providing non-sensationalist hyperlocal news on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We cover the big news across the LGA, but with a hyper focus on the Manly electorate encompassing Balgowlah, Seaforth, Freshwater, Brookvale and Curl Curl up to Dee Why. It is run by those living in the community for the benefit of an informed community. We care about an informed and connected community. That’s it. Simple. Thank you for your support in keeping quality local news alive!
