Brotherhood Books

Brotherhood Books is an online bookstore that sells second-hand books. It is run by a passionate team that includes more than 40 dedicated volunteers.

Brotherhood Books is Australia's first online charity store selling second-hand books

Formed in 2009 to make use of the pallets of donated books which were accumulating in the social enterprises warehouse, Brotherhood Books has evolved into a success story.

The website - which combines elements of the 'old' (good old-fashioned real books!) and the new (online retail)  now holds a collection of more than 100,000 books. These range from fiction through to rare and collectible books.

Brotherhood Books relies on the goodwill of a great number of people at each stage of the operation, from the generosity of the donors, the passion and dedication of volunteers, and the ongoing support of our ever increasing customer database.

Profits from all book sales are reinvested into the Brotherhood's many programs and services that assist people experiencing disadvantage at all stages of life.
