Indigenous Literacy Day

Wednesday the 5th September is Indigenous Literacy Day and we will be donating 20% of our takings to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Pop by to spend your book budget a better way this month, and/or contribute directly by adding to the collection tin in our shop!

The ILF is an Australian Book Industry initiative that works to raise awareness of literacy issues within the Australian community and to raise funds to equip Indigenous Australians living in remote communities with books and the support they need to become literate. Brown & Bunting donated books to the Northcote Library as part of a book swap event last year, but decided to extend our involvement this fundraising day as we feel this is such an important issue. The ILF aims to raise literacy levels and thus improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians. So pop in, buy a book and make a difference.
