ILF visits APY lands for the first time

We’re visiting the APY lands in remote SA today! APY stands for Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara and are the lands in remote North West South Australia with a population of 2500, consisting of Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra peoples. Packed up with a couple of hundred books, bags, t-shirts and two bush libraries, we can’t wait to share our early literacy program, Book Buzz, with the Amata and Ernabella communities for the very first time.

Today, we are out visiting Ernabella Family Centre and School for the day. This morning we were treated with a special reading of "Dogs" by Emily Gravett in Pitjantjatjara, the local language here (see image below).
