Welcome to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation acknowledges First Nations peoples and recognises their continuous connection to Country, community and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and honour the sharing of traditional stories passed down through generations.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this site may contain names, voices or images of people who have passed away.

Our vision is equity of opportunity 


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.




Book Supply

Gifts engaging, new, culturally appropriate books to communities that need them. We have supplied 537,100 books to over 400 communities, featuring at least 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.
