About Brotherhood Books

Brotherhood Books is an initiative of the Brotherhood of St Laurence, the not-for-profit organisation working with communities across Australia to alleviate and prevent poverty. Through research, engagement and learning, the Brotherhood creates policy and programs to strengthen those most at risk of poverty and disadvantage.

From running Growing Learners, which assists parents and their young children to prepare for school by learning together, to rolling out Reconnect, which helps people to start and stay in vocational education and training, we help individuals and families break the cycle of poverty so they can build better lives.

Brotherhood Books has been operating since 2009 and sells thousands of quality books online every week. Our team of dedicated volunteers gratefully receive the book donations, clean and sort the books, then sell them here and in our Brotherhood Community Stores. View these locations.

All the proceeds of these book sales are then reinvested back into the charitable operations of the Brotherhood of St Laurence. When you donate or purchase a book from Brotherhood Books, you are supporting us in working for an Australia free of poverty. Find out more.
