Book Distribution Program

Provides new books (up to five books to each child per year) to read, share, and cherish.

A child's pride in learning to read is a key element in achieving literacy. By providing children with new books to keep, Books for Kids enhances the relationship between parent and child and the relationship between child and book.

To excite children about reading, books are distributed through motivational events held at partner sites. This year, thousands of children will benefit by motivational reading events that will be held as part of Books for Kids book distribution program.

To date Books For kids has 38 Distribution Centers across Australia

Organise a book Drive.

Books for Kids works with businesses, school groups and community organizations to collect new books to be distributed through our programs. We also link groups to specific schools for "adoption". Volunteers provide the books (through book drives or cash contributions) for the at-risk children in a program and then participate in reading events within those programs.
