Indigenous Literacy Day

Our site is now live for Indigenous Literacy Day 2021! 

Choose from over 70 short, diverse and inspiring video stories from First Nations people including Australia's favourite pop star Jessica Mauboy and talented author and performer Gregg Dreise. There are stories from Stick Mob (a group of four young graphic novelists), children in remote communities, and a selection of pay-to-experience, high-quality workshops made by leading artists, authors and creatives.

 This is a great learning resource for all ages and is available until August 2022. 

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 Publishing Projects

Produces and publishes books by Indigenous people for Indigenous people. These books are important because they represent culture, community life and language.
