Books in Homes Australia was founded on the realisation that failure in adult life often stems from childhoods spent in homes without books. Children who cannot read, become adults who cannot communicate and this is unacceptable in a world that operates on the written word. Everything we do in life embraces the ability to read and write. Just imagine a life not being able to read street signs, or not being able to use email, or not being able to read medicines and food labels, or, indeed, be employable!
Our vision is to create an Australia where every child and family has access to books in the home.
