Quarry Mining is now proudly sponsoring books in homes Australia.
Books in Homes Australia provides books-of-choice to families and children living in remote and low socio-economic circumstances, ensuring crucial early literacy engagement and the development of reading skills needed for lifelong success. Books are chosen from Preview Packs of which 25% of titles are written by Indigenous Authors. These Packs are ultimately donated to the host organisation for the entire community to access. The Books in Homes Programme was originally inspired by Maori author Alan Duff who wrote the widely acclaimed book “Once Were Warriors”. It was founded 21 years ago in New Zealand and now every low decile school in New Zealand has access to this resource.
Books in Homes Australia was established in 2001 and has a similar blueprint to its New Zealand founder. Since 2001, Books in Homes Australia has successfully delivered more than 1,300,000 quality books of choice to over 380 low socio-economic communities in NSW, NT, QLD, SA, VIC, WA and TAS.
