About our Bookstore
Welcome to ROOP Books, where our dedicated volunteer team sorts and prices high-quality books for you. When you purchase a book from our store you are also donating one book to a Victorian marginalised child. Your purchase will also be supporting the charitable programs run by Reading out of Poverty (ROOP).
ROOP Books is an initiative of Reading out of Poverty, a not-for-profit organisation working with low-socioeconomic families across Victoria. We promote language skills and literacy for children, beginning at birth, and to support parents as their child’s first teachers. Through research, engagement, and learning, ROOP has established charitable programs that provide literacy services and resources to families with young children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Find out more about us.
All the proceeds of these book sales are then reinvested back into the charitable programs of ROOP. When you donate or purchase a book from ROOP Books, you are supporting us in providing early literacy skills and school preparedness for marginalised children 0-5 years old.
