Biggest Book Fair

Biggest Book Fair is a fun one-day event on Thursday 20 September when you can share the joy of reading and raise money to help teach disadvantaged Australians how to read and write. Whether you prefer thrillers, self help, fantasy, biography or children’s books: as long as your books are pre-loved and in good condition, they will be perfect for the Biggest Book Fair.

If you’re the social and energetic type in the office, why not organise an event at work so that your colleagues can come together to share the joy of reading? Maybe your friends or community group might like to share their joy of reading?

Hosting your own book fair is a really simple way to create employee engagement in the workplace by asking everyone to donate some of their pre loved books. Organise a simple get together so that all of the books can be sold and everyone can share their love of reading and contribute to teaching disadvantaged children how to read and write and enjoy reading too!

Any excuse for a get together is good. Have it over morning tea, a staff meeting, lunch, and don’t forget the cakes!

The official date is Thursday 20 September however you can hold your event on any day that suits you.

To host or participate, just register here. You’ll be sent a kit containing all the information you need.

All funds raised go to Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.

If you are in Canberra, Brindabella Business Park, right next to the airport, is holding a book fair in their Town Square.
