Dear Librarian,

Australia Remembers Ltd, as part of its mission for the Anzac Centenary, is inviting libraries across Australia to become the sponsoring library for the towns in their region for the Australia Remembers Anzac Journal so that people within their communities will have full access to all the Anzac Journals of Anzacs born in the library's area.

When your library becomes a sponsor library, people will be able to access the Australia Remembers Anzac Journal of any Anzac born in the library area through a portal page we create automatically for your library on the Australia Remembers Ltd website. People with connections to individual Anzacs can register as moderators and contributors, then add images and content to the journal which becomes a living history of the Anzac's story.

We do not provide public access to the Australia Remembers Anzac Journals except through the sponsoring library portal page for that region. We are inviting you to become the Australia Remembers Anzac Journal sponsoring library for your area.

Australia Remembers Ltd, as part of its mission for the Anzac Centenary, wishes to provide the Australia Remembers Anzac Journals to all our communities across Australia so that each Anzac Journal can be made available to people within each library area. Australia Remembers Ltd is a not-for-profit company and registered charity on the ACNC register with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. As such it relies on donations and sponsorship to provide its invaluable educational and community resources to our Australian communities.
