Being able to read opens so many doors. But in very remote Indigenous communities, books are all too scarce and literacy levels are so much lower than anywhere else in Australia. Our mission is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting thousands of new culturally appropriate books – with a focus on early literacy and first language - but also by running programs to inspire the communities to tell and publish their own stories.

We work in over 230 remote communities

Our programs

Book Supply

We gift new culturally appropriate books to communities that need them. We have supplied over 200,000 books to over 250 remote communities in our lifetime. 

Book Buzz

An early literacy program designed to encourage reading in children under five and inspire their families and carers to get involved. Some Book Buzz books are translated into first language. 

Community Literacy Projects

We have published 66 books written by community, some in their first language, with the support from many of Australia's renowned authors and illustrators.
