Books, books, the library wants your books!

To support the 2014 International Book Giving Day, the University Library will be donating as many books as they can to a number of very worthy organisations.

Your book donations would go to:

ABCA (Australian Books for Children of Africa)

ABCA is a non-profit organisation supplying educational material to impoverished schools of Africa.

Benjamin Andrew Footpath Library

Benjamin Andrew gives books to  homeless and disadvantaged people and stock libraries in centres such as Women’s Domestic Violence Service and Flagstaff Crisis Accommodation.

Bus of Books

Bus of Books is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing young people in rural and disadvantaged communities within Australia with resources and programs to read and succeed.

So if you have any good-quality new or used books of these types:

  • Non-fiction
  • Fiction
  • Self-help
  • Atlases, dictionaries and reference books
  • Cook books
  • Australian Geographic, motorcycle and car magazines
  • Children’s books

Please drop them off to the Baillieu Library Service Desk during business hours.

Hurry – the last day to donate your books is Friday 21 February!
