Kids Reading Outdoor

A not-for-profit initiative of SRU


Storycycle combines early literacy and sustainability goals through the recovery of children’s books for reuse, improving the flow of literacy resources into communities.

The project is managed by Jill, a qualified teacher and librarian, with input from Peter.

We distribute free, good quality used children’s books to community organisations for use in their programs and to give to families, increasing the number of books in the home. We also offer one-off book stalls, free story times, booklists and advice on story-sharing with children.

Our partners include playgroups, childcare, schools, charities, local government, neighbourhood houses, refuges and health centres. We work primarily in Melbourne but have also supplied partners in other parts of Australia and abroad.

To date we have distributed more than 20,000 books.

We have a partnership with Savers thrift stores where unsold books are collected regularly to feed into the program. We also accept donations from individuals and other organisations.
