Volunteer at a book fair

A huge number of volunteer hours keep our book fairs running smoothly. From book sorting throughout the year, through to making the magic happen on the day – our book fair volunteers go the extra mile.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping in the lead up to and during the fair. This involves setting-up, stocking and re-stocking books, managing sales, and helping pack down.

Donate books for a book fair

You can donate books, CDs, knitting patterns, and magazines.

Due to limited storage, each book fair accepts donations at different times throughout the year. Organisers will make a public call for donations when the time is right.  We will update this page when we are ready to accept books for each fair.
