How we help

The Footpath Library gathers new and excellent quality secondhand books and distributes them to homeless people living on the street through mobile services in Sydney, Perth and shortly, in Melbourne.  We collaborate with other providers in the homelessness sector such as Orange Sky Laundry and Vinnies Night Patrol, providing a truly unique service РThe Footpath Library is the only free mobile library for homeless people in Australia.

We maintain a high standard of physical and content quality, only giving books to our clients that we would be happy to give to a friend or relative.

Books help keep people healthy and happy and truly are food for the mind and soul!
