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.
We're excited to be adding another language house to our Great Book Swap Program for 2020. We'll assign you a language 'House' when you register, named after five 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. Look out for the announcement of the fifth house!
