Pandemic restrictions may have forced the cancellation of Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury’s famous book fairs on the North Shore, but it hasn’t stopped us from establishing COVID-safe pop-up book shops in the area, with the next outlet opening next week in Hornsby!
The success of Lifeline H2H’s first two Pop-Up Book Shops has shown that there remains a ravenous appetite for printed books, DVDs and CDs among locals and visitors from all over Sydney. The new Hornsby Book Shop aims to help satisfy that craving, with volunteers working hard to clean and sort stock for the first day of trading this coming Tuesday.
Past and new supporters of Lifeline can now choose from a massive range of high-quality, low-priced books – as well as DVDs, CDs, vinyls, comics and computer games. What’s more, stock presented in the Hornsby Book Shop has never been made available before, at either a book fair or any of Lifeline’s retail stores.
All carefully selected pre-loved items are in good or excellent condition, and books are sorted into more than 50 categories – including children’s and young adult, popular and literary fiction, memoir and biography, classics, art, history, military, science and nature, travel, music, graphic novels, cookery, gardening, craft, text books and study guides. Stock is replenished daily, so return visits are a must.
Whether you’re a bibliophile, a collector, or you just love reading/films/music, there’s something for everyone at Lifeline’s Pop-up Book Shops. Do pop in and bring the whole family – but don’t wait. These pop-ups won’t last forever, so grab your bargains while you can.
All proceeds raised by Lifeline’s Pop-up Book Shops go towards funding Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury’s comprehensive suite of crisis support and suicide prevention services. Lifeline H2H thanks all customers and donors for their much-valued support and generosity in helping us to help others.
The Lifeline Pop-Up Book Shop in Hornsby is located close to the railway station, with plenty of car parking available nearby. Cash accepted, though card preferred.
