We are a  registered charity who provide brand new books of choice to disadvantaged children throughout Australia via three unique literacy support programs; Book Bank, Library Regeneration & Duck Libraries.   In the 2018 financial year alone we provided a record breaking;
  • 41,642 books to
  • 28,423 children at
  • 168 schools around Australia.
We believe all children should have access to the tools they need to do well in school and work with local communities to try and address this.

Providing brand new books goes a long way to improving literacy outcomes. Children who read regularly and from a variety of texts do better at school and have better mental and physical health than their peers^. 

There are many ways to get involved in our work, from donating to volunteering your time. Find out more about our work here.

Please help us continue our work by participating in one of our events or fundraisers listed below. 

The Great Debate, on April 12th 2019 at the Four Seasons Sydney, will raise much needed funds to provide literacy programs to support disadvantaged children.  

'Round Up' is an ongoing & important way to help raise funds for us. When customers make a purchase at a Dymocks store or online they can make a voluntary 'round up' donation.  This donation is used to get more brand new books to more kids.
Can you run, jog, walk or push a stroller? Want to get fit and raise money for a great cause at the same time? Why not support Dymocks Children's Charities for your next sporting event?
