CBCA NSW | Illawarra-South Coast Sub-branch
The Illawara South Coast Sub-branch was founded in 2007 by well-known author and long-term CBCA supporter, Di Bates.
Our Sub-branch strives to instil a love of books, stories, illustration, creative writing and poetry among local children and their families.
Our dedicated group of volunteers have worked hard for over ten years organising events and activities to promote literacy, a love of reading and an appreciation of Australian books among children and young adults.
Some of our annual activities include a fundraising event in June, the primary school 'Literary Lunch' in August, and the free ‘Kids Day Out’ in January. We facilitate an author visit program for schools of socio-economic disadvantage and donate books to schools and early childhood facilities.
