We are a  registered charity who provide brand new books of choice to pre-school and primary school age children in priority areas around Australia. We believe all children should have access to the tools they need to do well in school, and work with the Dymocks network and local communities to try and address this. 

We run three programs for pre-primary and primary school aged children;
  1. Book Bank.
  2. Library Regeneration.
  3. Duck Libraries.   
These programs ensure brand new books of choice get to kids who would otherwise miss out. In the 2018 financial year alone,  we provided a record breaking 41,642 books to 28,423 children at 168 schools around Australia.

Providing brand new books of choice is a vital first step towards improving literacy outcomes. Children who read regularly and from a variety of different texts do better at school and have better mental and physical health than their peers.^ Children want to make their own choices about the books they read, and engage with their learning. Often families, schools or pre-schools don't have have the funds or resources necessary to provide the books kids want and need. We are uniquely placed to help, and are commited to ensuring more Australian kids can access brand new books of choice more often. 

There are many ways to get involved in our work; donating, fundraising for us, partnering with us or volunteering your time. Can you join us?




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 hotel in Sydney, will raise much needed funds to provide literacy programs to support disadvantaged children.  

'Round Up' is an ongoing, important way of raising funds for us. When customers make a purchase at a Dymocks store or online they can make a voluntary 'round up' donation.  This money 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 get sponsored & raise funds for us for your next sporting event?
