You may spot us handing out Book Aid International stickers, pens, and flyers at some of the networking events we go to…
But why do we love Book Aid International so much?
- Because they take excess stock from UK publishers, cutting down on pulping.
- They distribute new books donated by publishers to libraries in sub-Saharan Africa to help improve the prospects for learning and literacy in the communities they serve.
- It’s a beautifully simple and effective idea, and deserves as much support as possible.
We encourage our publisher clients to donate books. Everybody else can donate money or time to help spread the word for this brilliant charity organisation.
‘Book Aid International works in partnership with libraries in sub-Saharan Africa providing books, resources and training to support an environment in which reading for pleasure, study and lifelong learning can flourish. Every year Book Aid International provides up to one million new books, donated by UK publishers, to libraries in Africa. We also provide training for librarians to ensure that readers get the very best from our donated books, and grants for purchasing locally-published books and for library refurbishments. Our work is practical, effective and empowering.’
