Register for Indigenous Literacy Day

Register your interest in Indigenous Literacy Day: Celebrating Stories and Language! This year, we are hosting a free virtual celebration for all Australians going live from 9am Wednesday 1 September

Through storytelling, ILD provides a window into the richness, diversity and multilingual world of First Nations peoples with a selection of short, two minute, inspiring video stories by First Nations storytellers (of all ages) from across the country. 

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.
