The Oxfam Second Hand Bookshop is run entirely by volunteers and relies upon donations of books from the public and organisations. Last year we raised within a hair’s breadth of $250,000 for the first time. Although we are an independent group, we are linked to OXFAM Australia and our proceeds are directed to them to fund various aid and development projects.
You can support us in various ways, including:
- Being a customer and buying books at our Hutt Street bookshop, downstairs at the OXFAM Shop in Charles Street (CBD), or at our bi-annual $1 Super Sidewalk Book Sale;
- Donating books to stock our shelves and sale events,
or as a
- Volunteer – there are various roles available depending upon your availability.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Peter at OxBooksVol@gmail.com for more information or pick up an application form from the Hutt Street Bookshop. We are lucky to have a committed group of volunteers giving their time and we welcome a range of skills to keep the Bookshop running smoothly and improve it’s services.
