The 38th Chronicle Lifeline Bookfest is now over for 2018 and here is a wrap up from CEO of Lifeline Darling Downs and SW Queensland, Derek Tuffield.
Toowoomba’s biggest recycled book sale was on at the Founders Pavilion at the Showgrounds, Glenvale Road, Toowoomba, Saturday 3rd March from 8.00am -5.00pm and Sunday 4th March 8.00am – 2.00pm.
There are 70 tonnes of books on sale with nothing over $5 and most books are considerably less. Bookfest is celebrating it’s 38th year in 2018 and is one of Toowoomba’s longest running events.
Having generated well over $1 million in the event’s long history the funds raised at this event will ensure Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Queensland can keep up the great work supporting the community in need.
Categories for sale at the two-day event include cooking, sewing, gardening, craft, children’s books, text books, bibliographies, history, fiction, romance, murder mystery and much more.
Admission and parking was free.
