Our Mission / Objective

We are a national book industry charity dedicated to lifting literacy levels in remote Indigenous communities, so all children across Australia have the same choices and opportunities.

Our Services

Being able to read opens so many doors. But in very remote Indigenous communities, books are all too scarce and literacy levels are so much lower than anywhere else in Australia. Our purpose is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting thousands of new culturally appropriate books – with a focus on early literacy and first language – but also by running programs to inspire the communities to tell and publish their own stories.

Projects in Progress

Our Programs are; Book Supply, Book Buzz and Community Literacy Projects.

 

Book Supply gifts new, engaging, and culturally appropriate books to communities that need them. We have supplied over 440,000 books to over 400 communities, 40% by Indigenous authors and illustrators. 

 

Book Buzz promotes early literacy and familiarity with books in children under five with a dedicated story-time session. Carers are supported to share books with their children in home languages and in English. 

 

Community Literacy Projects produces and publishes books by Indigenous people for Indigenous people. These books are important because they represent culture, community life and language.
