The Little Big Book Swap

Swap books, raise funds and have fun!
Host a book swap event in your community and help raise funds to support literacy programs and resources for SA families.

Getting involved is easy:

  • Register your event and receive a FREE Host Kit to help you plan your book swap.
  • Invite friends/family/colleagues or students to your event. Ask them to bring along a pre-loved book and a gold coin donation.
  • Start swapping! Each time a book is swapped, a gold coin is collected.
  • When the event finishes, donate the proceeds  to Raising Literacy Australia.

Hosting a book swap is a fun and enjoyable way to share the joy of reading and support the gift of books and resources to SA communities.

So what are you waiting for? Swap books, raise funds and have fun!
