About us

Reading Opens Doors!

Our vision is equity for opportunity. 

We are a national book industry charity, which aims to reduce the disadvantage experienced by children in remote Indigenous communities across Australia, by lifting literacy levels and instilling a lifelong love of reading. We do this through our three core 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 – With the help of experts in the book industry, we have published 47 books written by community, some in their first language.
