The Great Book Swap is a fantastic way to celebrate reading locally, and raise much-needed funds for remote communities. Schools, workplaces, libraries, universities, book clubs, individuals and all kinds of organisations can host one. The idea is to swap a favourite book in exchange for a gold coin donation. This year, our goal is to raise $350,000 to gift 35,000 new, carefully-chosen books to children who need them the most.
To celebrate the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages, we're excited to assign you a language 'House' when you register, named after four different animals in Aboriginal languages. You'll have exclusive access to a host of fantastic language-themed resources including teachers' notes, fact sheets, maps, videos and books written by children in your House's language.
