We would like to extend a big thank you to the Bond community for making the Great Book Swap such a success. Just over $500 was raised which is a wonderful donation that will go the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
A special thank you also to PVC Alan Finch, Aunty Pat Levy, Narelle Urquhart and Jason Murray from the Nyombile Centre and Madison Byrne-Jameson and Emily MacDonald from Bond Indigenous Awareness Society (BIAS) who all collaborated with the Library staff organising the event (Jessie, Sue, Jo, Peta, Rachel and Daniel – and Amy and Tiffany who helped man the stall!).
We received many generous book donations in the 2 weeks leading up to the event … and many of these went home with a new owner! A great result for the Bond community.
