Swap one for the books

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

BIG books, lit­tle books, thick ones, thin ones and those with or with­out pic­tures – Good Start Early Learn­ing Cock­burn Cen­tral wants them all as part of a fundraiser for the In­dige­nous Lit­er­acy Foun­da­tion.

The child­care cen­tre will be tak­ing part in The Great Book Swap, act­ing as a col­lec­tion point for un­wanted books be­tween now and Septem­ber 4 when it will hold a com­mu­nity stall for lo­cals to swap a book for a gold-coin do­na­tion.

Money raised dur­ing the event will be used to buy books for chil­dren liv­ing in In­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties.

Good­start Early Learn­ing Cock­burn Cen­tral’s Regina van Heythuy­sen said if every­one in their lo­cal com­mu­nity do­nated a book it would make a world of dif­fer­ence.

“The Great Book Swap is a fan­tas­tic way to cel­e­brate read­ing lo­cally and raise much-needed funds for re­mote com­mu­ni­ties,” she said.

“This year the In­dige­nous Lit­er­acy Foun­da­tion’s goal is to raise $350,000.”
