Great Book Drive @ the Gatehouse Ballarat

We are very happy to finally be able to run our Great Book Drive, in support of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation!

We had quite a blast the last time we did this, having plenty of conversations about writing, poetry and books with browsers, and even sharing some spoken word.

This time we have fewer restrictions, so folks are welcome to bring books to swap or donate, and of course to simply take! All we ask is for a donation to go to the ILF regardless.

The event will again be held in the gorgeous grounds of the Gatehouse Cafe, at the Lydiard Street entrance of the Ballarat New Cemetery, and coffee and food will be available.

Details for the Great Book Drive: Sunday, 3 April, 1.30-3pm, at the Gatehouse

Please pop in, say g’day and grab a bargain or three for a good cause.

Leftover books will go to charity unless other arrangements are made. Contact us at if you’d like to donate books but can’t make it on the day, and we’ll see what we can work out!
