SHOPPERS can help boost the literature stocks at Eddystone Primary School this week through a ‘Books for kids’ campaign.

Dymocks book stores in Joondalup, Karrinyup and Morley have chosen the Heathridge school as beneficiary of the campaign, donating $1 from every children’s book sold between August 4 and 12 to the chain’s children’s charities literacy programs.

The library regeneration program will provide a range of books chosen by teachers and students at the school, where 4 per cent of the student population is indigenous and 63 per cent has a language background other than English.

Franchise owner James Brown said the stores were committed to supporting literacy at a local level.

“Reading is an essential life skill and supporting children’s literacy is a key component of our community engagement,” he said.

“Reading a good book is one of life’s great pleasures and our customers love nothing more than buying books for their kids.

“During Books for Kids week they can help share the life-changing impact of books with kids who need it most.”
