Wombat Books often receives requests to donate books to schools that do not have big budgets for their libraries. We love to be able to donate books where we can, especially to get Australian titles in children’s hands. However, as a boutique publisher, we also don’t have big budgets to give books away every time.

Therefore, we’ve decided to start a drive between now and the end of January 2020 to donate Wombat Book titles to Australian schools in need.

For every $20 spent on our website directly between now and the end of January, we will put aside 3 books to be donated to an Australian school library.*

As we are also passionate about supporting Australian bookstores we will also donate the same for all orders of Wombat and Rhiza titles from your local bookshops. Just email us a copy of your receipt so we can add the value to the tally!!!**

School libraries wishing to apply for these donations can contact us by sending us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and headlining it ‘School Donations’. We’d love to hear which of our books you’d like to fill your library with and how the school would benefit by having Wombat Books titles. ***

Thank you for your interest in supporting Australian schools with more books in their libraries and Wombat Books, a family-run Queensland based publishing house.

* Schools can request types of books but the final donated books will be chosen by Wombat Books

** Email your receipt to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and quote ‘School Donations’

*** The only cost to schools will be a freight contribution of $25 per total donation. We hope donation values to each school to be worth over $500.
