Please donate your children’s old books

We’d love your children’s books!

Every book donated is cleaned and sorted by age and topic before being selected for distribution to one of our partner organisations. We work with settings throughout London. Click here for details.

Where possible we give books that reflect targeted children’s interests and reading needs. They may want baby books for a mother and baby group, books for young readers, book for boys or something completely different. Receiving donations of books for all ages and interests helps us to match these with a child.
