ROTARY BOOKFEST NOOSA
2023 BOOKFEST SALE DATES OVER 3 DAYS
from FRIDAY 28th to SUNDAY 30th April 2023
MOUNTAINS OF BOOKS FOR SALE
Rotary Noosa Daybreak are again holding the annual BOOKFEST NOOSA.
Over 3 days from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th April 2023, 9am to 5pm every day, books will be on sale at the Noosa Leisure Centre in Wallace Drive, Noosaville (next to Noosa Library).
Books this year are at bargain-basement prices, so everyone is assured of a great buy. Come along and invest in a whole new library to tide you over for the following year.
Over the weekend there will be a larger number of quality pre-loved books for sale than ever before, thanks to the donations collected all year round, and all on display for 3 days of browsing and choosing, at the one location in the Leisure Centre. This year for the first time, the huge collection of Fiction books will be displayed in alphabetical order of Authors, making selection easier.
Funds raised at the BOOKFEST NOOSA this year will go directly towards benefiting our community. Rotary Noosa Daybreak are jointly funding a Phd student researching Suicide Prevention, with University of Sunshine Coast and Australian Rotary Health. This is a 3 year commitment.
This event is about Rotary supporting people in the Sunshine Coast Community:
- Providing thousands of books for sale; children’s at $1 each, all others $2.50 each
- Fundraising directly for the benefit of Mental Health Research into Suicide Prevention
- Fundraising for local causes including Salvation Army and Rotary Youth Projects

TO THE SPONSORS OF BOOKFEST NOOSA
Just to keep you informed, our recent Bookfest Noosa was again successful, with thousands of books sold and enabling our fundraising to support the SUICIDE RESEARCH PROJECT. Below is a description of this project for your interest.
Thank you so much for supporting us in this cause.
Recent assessments of the Noosa Shire indicate that up to 110 people are homeless for any of a number of reasons (including domestic violence victims and those that are experiencing financial hardship).
To address this problem, Noosa Daybreak Rotary is partnering with the Salvation Army to support short term accommodation to house the homeless in the Noosa Shire.
The major beneficiary of this year’s Bookfest will be the joint initiative to support the homeless that will build on existing Salvation Army programs.
