Access to books in remote Communities is challenging, as there are often no libraries or bookstores. ILF’s Book Supply program meets this need by providing new, culturally relevant books to remote Communities across Australia. Schools, Community, health, and women's centres working in remote Communities, can order books to distribute to children and families.
Book Supply packs are carefully selected for different age groups:
Big Kids 8-12, and
45-50% of books in the Book Supply packs feature Indigenous authors and illustrators. This is important as it allows kids to see themselves and their culture reflected in the stories, helping to build a sense of connection, belonging and pride.
To register for Book Supply your organisation must work in or service remote or very remote communities.
