IBBY New Zealand: Home language books for refugees

IBBY New Zealand proposes to collect books, mainly picture books, graphic novels and non- fiction books for younger readers in the home language of refugee children. These will be donated to the classroom libraries at the Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre where, at the moment, most of the materials are in English. The selection of the books would be made with academics in the field as well as consultation with IBBY National Sections and bookshops in the relevant countries.
