And we have books for everybody! Regardless of whether you are zero or 18, there's something for you. There are special collections of new books if you have an infectious illness or are immune suppressed, and we even have books in 40 languages.

Just like a normal library, everything is catalogued so you can borrow books and CDs via computer. If you have to stay in bed, our volunteers can bring a trolley of books to your ward.

You are also welcome to come and visit us—you can just sit and read in our relaxing environment, or borrow something to take back to your bed. Wheelchairs and medicine poles are welcome.

The Book Bunker is supported by Scholastic Australia.
