The Great Big Book Swap!

National Book Week

As part of National Book Week and to help raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to buy books for remote indigenous communities who don’t have access to books we’re holding a Great Big Book Swap.

There are schools involved all across Australia and the target is $100,000 to buy 10,000 books.

If every child can please bring a book to school that they love but no longer want and a gold coin donation, then they can be part of the book swap. By donating a gold coin, they can then swap their book for a new book that someone else has donated.

So we can all raise money for a very important cause and have a terrific new book to take home. Check out the website for more information:

When? Wednesday August 24

Where? The gym

Time? Lunchtime Weds August 24

What you need to do: Bring your (good) book you want to swap to the gym before school on Wednesday August 24 and you’ll get a ticket. Bring the ticket and your gold coin at lunch time and get a new book.

Can I swap as many books as I like? Yes. But you need a gold coin per book!

What sort of books should I donate? Bring in books that are the same age as the books you want to take home. Otherwise we end up with lots books nobody wants!!!
