Donations Welcome: NeuroDiversity Connect Library Resources

NeuroDiversity Connect is launching a Library in January 2016. The Library will be run by post, so you will be able to borrow from anywhere in Australia.

We would be grateful to receive donations of new or lightly used books and resources from our Wish List, to be included as part of the Library.

NeuroDiversity Connect is established based on specific values, and the books on our wishlist are chosen because they contain messages consistent with those values. Books that do not suit the purpose of our library, will not be included in our library resources. If there is a book you would like to donate that is not on our list, please send us a message to check if we can use it before you post.

It’s simple!

  1. Choose a book or resource from the Wish List below
  2. Send book or resource to NDC at PO Box 104, Katoomba, NSW 2780, Australia
  3. Send us a message in our Facebook Page inbox, to let us know you have donated
