The Books in Homes Project provides free books to children in regional and remote communities across northern Australia.

The philosophy behind the program is that children who read books from a young age and more likely to grow up with a love for reading and an aptitude for learning.

Under the program, students are able to choose nine books free of charge from a catalogue, which they receive at a special assembly at school.

Robinson River, Borroloola and Kiana schools are all involved with the program with the support of the MRM Community Benefits Trust.
