HELP CLOSE THE LITERACY GAP
As a bookshop, we see firsthand the joy and excitement that reading can bring. We know how a great story, history or biography can take you away and, almost by osmosis, open the doors to knowledge of yourself and of the outside world. This knowledge gives you options and an understanding that there are many different ways to live a life and contribute to your community. That's why Abbey's supports the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF).
The ILF was founded in 2004 by Suzy Wilson, a former teacher and education consultant who owns Riverbend Books in Brisbane. The ILF is a not-for-profit charity with a focus on reducing the disadvantage experienced by children in remote Indigenous communities across Australia by lifting literacy levels and instilling a lifelong love of reading.
The ILF gift new, culturally appropriate books to communities that need them.
An early literacy program designed to encourage reading in children under five and inspire their families and carers to get involved.
COMMUNITY LITERACY PROJECTS
The ILF have published many books written by community, some in their first language, with the support from many of Australia's renowned authors and illustrators.
