After much packing and posting, our initiative to donate more than $50,000 worth of children’s books to libraries across Australia is now complete.
Supporting both community street libraries and primary school libraries around the country, it’s been our mission to get books into the hands of as many kids as possible, which we hope will help to foster a passion for reading that serves them throughout their lives.
Inspired by local communities that have taken it upon themselves to invest in reading and instill a love of books in the next generation, it has been our privilege to donate more than $30,000 worth of children’s books to street libraries Australia-wide.
Plus, in partnership with the Australian Children’s Laureate Foundation and this year’s Children’s Laureate —celebrated Aussie author Morris Gleitzman —we have donated a further $20,000 to 40 primary school libraries.
Libraries are an invaluable resource for Australians of all ages, and we hope these donations help them continue to flourish.
