BOOKFEST

Bookfest is a major fundraising event for the Murilla Communtiy Centre.

What started off as a small event has grown significantly to now include local stall holders to complement the book sales with items like jewellery, massages, jams and preserves, face painting, necklace making; handmade glass beads, wool spinning, face painting and apple slinkies as well as our always popular canteen and raffles.

 

Bookfest would not be possible without the tireless efforts of our dedicated team of volunteers and the Murilla Community Centre Staff.  Volunteers contribute by sorting, cleaning and packing donated books throughout the year, sourcing water proof boxes, setting up and cleaning up the hall, transporting the books from storage to the event, creating signage and selling raffle tickets, not to mention helping out on the day by assisting people looking for a particular author or topic, as well as providing tea, coffee, and food. 

Books can be donated to the Community Centre at any time throughout the year. 

 

Bookfest is also supported by local businesses and the Western Downs Regional Council. Previous contributors include Laing O'Rourke, Origin Energy, Suncorp, Queensland Bulls Masters, Black Toyota, Heidi’s Gifts, Homewares by LK, 4 little ones, Flexi Foam, Richards Transport, Toms Signs and RoadTek  as well as many other individuals from our community and further afield. 

 

If you would like to volunteer or contribute in any away, please contact the Murilla Community Centre on 4627 2027.

The 10th anniversary of Bookfest was held on Saturday the 25th of May 2019. The event had a wide selection of books, DVD's, cassettes, puzzles, games, records & much more! The total amount of money raised from this event will go towards keeping the community buses on the road! A big thank-you to all of the dedicated volunteers who put in months of hard work and spend hours tirelessly cleaning and categorising thousands of books in preparation for the event.

On April 21st the annual Bookfest was held at the Leichhardt Centre, Miles. Books were up for sale fro as little as $1 or you could fill a bag for $5. The event raised over $3,400 for the day. This money has allowed for the Murilla Community Bus to continue to run for another year. A big thank you must be given to all of the volunteers who spend hours upon hours in the up coming months before the big day!

Bookfest is a bonanza for literary lovers and this year there was a smorgasbord of books on offer! Bookfest is the culmination of months of hard work from dedicated volunteers who spend hours tirelessly cleaning and categorising thousands upon thousands of books in preparation for the big day.

The event raised well over $3,500 through the purchase of books and raffle tickets. This money will go directly towards keeping the Murilla Community Centre community bus on the road. The bus is used to transport community members and the elderly to specialist appointments in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Dalby and Roma.
