Schools & community groups

School & community group book drives

Join the network of schools and community groups across the country that regularly hold Book Drives on our behalf by inviting families to bring in any gently used books they have outgrown. These are then donated to children in need, giving them the opportunity to discover the joy of book ownership.

How to run your book drive

  1. Register your Book Drive so that we can support and celebrate you
  2. Pick a date (one or two days is often ideal)
  3. Promote your event using our videos, posters and other materials
  4. Set your community a challenge e.g., to collect 1,000 children’s books
  5. Count and celebrate the books donated!
