Sharing our books with students in PNG
Remote communities of Papua New Guinea were recently presented with gifts of donated library books from both our Junior and Secondary Libraries. Due to the Secondary Library purchasing new textbooks for the new Queensland Senior Curriculum, a significant number of used textbooks were removed from the collection at the end of 2019 and donated via Rotary Australia. As well, the Junior Library compiled numerous boxes of fiction and non-fiction resources which, together with the Secondary Library, meant close to 100 boxes of books were sent.
Here is a glimpse of just one community receiving our books with great excitement and gratitude.
