The Great Book Swap

We acknowledge the people of the Wiradjuri, Ngunnawal, Biripai (Biripi/Bripi/Birrbay) and Gundungurra Nations, who are the traditional custodians and knowledge keepers of the lands where Charles Sturt University campuses are located. We offer respect to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all First Nations people.

Users should be aware that some of the information linked below may contain images and voices of deceased persons which can cause sadness and distress to Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders and offend against strongly held cultural prohibitions.

This year we are holding the Great Book Swap on all campuses to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The Foundation is aiming to raise $100,000 to gift 15,000 books to children in remote communities.

You’ll find book and cake stalls at all campuses on Tuesday 20 September from 10:00am to 11:30am.

  • Bathurst – entrance to Pulse Cafe
  • Dubbo – courtyard near the old student cafe
  • Orange – Banjo’s Cafe
  • Port Macquarie – courtyard of Building 801

You can donate with a gold coin on the day or via our fundraising page at any time. If you are in a position to do so, please consider donating to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
