How to participate in the Great Book Swap

Please participate to raise much needed funds for this important project.

  • Bring along one of your favourite or much loved books so you can swap it for someone else’s.
  • Make a donation and all the money raised will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Project.
  • Bookplates will be available so you can tell the recipient why the book means so much to you.
  • Books can be dropped off at any University of Sydney Library information desk before the day.

The Great Book Swap is being hosted by the University of Sydney Library and the Faculty of Education and Social Work, with support from the Koori Centre and Yooroang Garang.
