Give A Book
Give A Book
Give a Book provides books to a range of people at a time when they really need them. We work with various other charities, organisations, schools and prisons to give books where they will have a positive impact.
Give a Book is a UK based charity set up in 2011 with the simple aim of giving books where they will be of particular benefit.
Our core belief is that to pass on a good read – to give a book – is a transaction of worth. By working with schools, prisons, local communities, and partnering with other organisations, we facilitate the provision of books for a variety of projects.
We believe in the importance of promoting literacy and reading for pleasure, and have seen that there are many different situations where the gift of a book at the right time can really have a positive impact.
Give A Book aims to:
- To promote literacy and encourage reading for pleasure amongst children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
- To provide books to custody suites and prison reading groups on a regular basis.
