Book giving tree

We invite you to donate a new book from a local Boroondara business as part of the Book giving tree program. Book drop-off points at libraries will open on Monday 7 November 2022.

We are pleased to partner with You Matter for this year’s annual gift giving program. You can find out more about this organisation on the You Matter website.

All donations must be received by close of business on Friday 2 December 2022 so that they can be distributed.

Find out how to make a donation on our Book giving tree program news item.
