Hold a Great Book Swap this Reconciliation Week

What are you doing this National Reconciliation Week? You are invited to hold a Great Book Swap in your workplace. It is an opportunity to LEARN about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and literature; SHARE books; and GROW your understanding of our national story. The idea is to swap a pre-loved book with someone else's, in exchange for a $5 donation. This helps us buy new books for children in remote communities who have few to none.
