Growing our collection

Sourcing Authors

Our library books are created by volunteers, experienced authors and in-country projects. We work with educators and development organisations to run Writers’ Workshops around the world. This ensures our educational content is relevant to local readers. We know young readers learn best with books that mirror their lived experiences, enhancing their interest in reading and storytelling and leading to better literacy outcomes.

Editing Our Books

The stories sourced from our worldwide pool of authors are edited by Library For All to ensure the content is high quality, interesting to young readers, and relevant to local educational curriculum needs.

Matching with Illustrators

When the story text is ready for publication, we match it with an illustrator, photographer or picture researcher to bring out the best in the words with colourful, engaging imagery.

Creating an ePub

Our books are produced in several formats. We ask our digital publishing teams to create beautifully designed epubs for use in our Library For All app, as well as print-ready versions. We meet the needs of the world’s most remote small schools, libraries or community spaces and ensure our library reaches them in a format they can access.

QA Testing

Our Publishing Team conducts rigorous QA testing of every book before it becomes part of our library. Technical frustrations should not impede people’s desire to read, so our books are checked for download speed, image quality and readability.

Adding to the library

Finally, we take great pride in adding completed books to our library ‘back end’, which then makes them available to all via our app on any Android device.

Sustainability in action

Did you know we create global impact by embracing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


Library For All operates across the world with our base operations in Australia. In the spirit of reconciliation, Library For All acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and the continuation of cultural, spiritual, and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
