Dymocks Children's CharitiesPosted on Thursday, 7 April 2016
Dymocks Children’s Charities are currently accepting Expressions of Interest from Australian primary schools for the Library Regeneration Program.
One of the main priorities for Dymocks Children's Charities is to improve the resourcing of school libraries around Australia. According to the Softlink 2014 Australian School Library Survey, there is a strong correlation between school library budgets and literacy levels both in Australia and in libraries worldwide. The report also states that 81% of all Australian school library budgets either remained unchanged or declined last year.
Dymocks Children's Charities has been partnering with several organisations to change this situation by supporting school libraries who are in need of books. In 2014, $120,000 worth of books was provided to school libraries through the Library Regeneration Program.
Schools interested in submitting an Expression of Interest for the program should read the attached documents and return their completed Expression of Interest by the closing date of 30 October 2015. Successful applicants will then be included on an approved list and selected for inclusion in the program once sponsor funding becomes available.
