Travelling Books

Literacy Aotearoa and New Zealand Post are pleased to offer communities the gift of Travelling Books.

The Travelling Books 2012 Launch was held on 31 Whiringa ā nuku (October) at Government House in Auckland, hosted by His Excellency The Governor-General of New Zealand Lieutenant General, The Right Honourable Sir Jerry Mateparae.

Thousands of books with the ‘Literacy Aotearoa & New Zealand Post’ label have been released throughout the country by our member providers since 1 Whiringa ā rangi (November).  On the inside cover of each book, readers are encouraged to:

Take this book with you, read it… and when you’re finished leave it in a safe and dry public place for someone else to find.

… and to enter a monthly draw for a Prezzy Card ($50 value).  Note the Prezzy Card can only be redeemed in New Zealand.
Thanks to Huia Publishers, Random House, Gecko Press, and Scholastic for their support in this project.
