NAIDOC Week: The Great Book Swap

Ground Level outside Sussan
  • No occurrences or past event

This year we are partnering with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to bring to life The Great Book Swap.

1 in 10 children in NT remote communities can’t read. Most children don’t have access to books, which are the central building blocks in learning to read. The Great Book Swap is a fantastic way to raise much-needed funds for remote Indigenous communities, while also celebrating reading in our local community. The idea is to swap a favourite book in exchange for another, for a gold coin donation.

Last year, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation raised over $190,000 from the Great Book Swap and this year their goal is to raise $300,000 to gift 30,000 new books to remote communities who have few to none.

We are encouraging customers to bring in pre-loved books to donate between Monday 9th July – Friday 13th July. Then on Saturday 14th July, we would love customers to come in and for a gold coin donation take a pre-loved book home. All funds raised from this will go to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation and their great work.

To further celebrate NAIDOC Week, we will also have a traditional Digeridoo performance, kids face painting and boomerang craft.
