SHARE your much-loved stories with other readers at The Great Book Swap at Joondalup Library on Wednesday.

Held on Indigenous Literacy Day, the initiative encourages people to take in a pre-loved book and for a gold coin donation, swap it for a book that someone else has donated.

Book plates will also be available to write a personal message to leave inside the donated books.

All funds raised will go to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to support reading in remote communities.

This year, the nation-wide event aims to raise $300,000 to buy 30,000 books.

The swap will run from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
