Book Fair Items
Donations are always needed and welcome!
Please read the information below – particularly our guidelines for what we can and cannot accept. Then, if you have any further queries about donations, please call (02) 9498 8805 or email us at email@example.com
Our quality standards
Because we pride ourselves on the good quality and condition of books at our sales, we can only accept good-condition items.
Except for rare, valuable, children’s classics, or antiquarian books, we are looking for donations of books which are in good condition. If they are yellowed, mouldy, torn, dirty, written in, defaced, have pages stuck together, or are in any other way significantly damaged, please recycle them rather than go to the trouble of bringing them to us.
If possible, if you have more than a few books, please place them in a smaller size cardboard box or shopping bag which is able to be easily carried.
If you have any enquiries about donations, please call (02) 9498 8805 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donating your pre-loved books?
Here’s what we can and cannot accept:
Sorry, no thanks!
Reader’s Digest magazines
Adult encyclopaedias, no matter how new
Magazines, including National Geographic & Australian Geographic
Books that are ‘leftovers’ from other organisations’ book sales, fetes or charity fundraising events
Books that have been ‘retired’ from school and public library collections
Any item not meeting our quality standards
Donations can be left at the following locations:
West Lindfield Book Depot
Book Depot: Mon-Thurs 9am-3pm excluding public holidays
Gordon Book Shed
Book Shed: ACCEPTING DONATIONS 24/7
Office: Please use the book shed in car park. This shed is emptied on Tuesday and Friday mornings. If the shed is full, please do not leave donations outside the shed as they can become damaged.
The Lifeline Book Shed is located directly behind our office at 4 Park Avenue Gordon in the Car Park, off Pearson Avenue. As you enter the car park, there is a silver coloured garden shed on the right set back slightly from the car park and next to the blue clothing bins.
If you have any questions or queries, please ask the office between the hours of 9am and 5pm between Monday and Friday.
