Engaging local community to support our community
Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is not only the peak not for profit charity advocating and providing designated support programs for the cystic fibrosis community, we also operate a social enterprise – the Cystic Fibrosis Queensland Bookshop. All funds raised by the bookshop are returned to members through welfare subsidies to support the cost of hospital parking, medications and physical activity.
Our bookshop is one of Brisbane’s best secrets and we want to change that! The Cystic Fibrosis Queensland Bookshop is the largest warehouse of second-hand books in Queensland. Donations from the State Library and Brisbane City Council Libraries, alongside our donations from the public, continue to supply us with a variety of genres and interests; we have a book for every taste and sensibility.
Our partnership with the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust ensures that 30% of the sales of Brisbane City Council Library books sold at the Cystic Fibrosis Queensland Bookshop is returned to council initiatives for the Brisbane community.
Volunteers and work-for-the-dole placements continue to be the staffing back bone of the shop and new recruits are always welcome.
With regular sales and bulk buying discounts, you will not find a better priced recent released publication anywhere else. We love to welcome new customers and with your help we can put this place on the map as the best second-hand bookshop in Brisbane!
