We believe in the power of books to provide knowledge and pleasure and to change people’s lives.
Books and reading offer people a chance to improve their own lives. But in many parts of Africa people are unable to fulfil their potential because of a basic lack of books and reading resources. We work to change that by supporting libraries in Africa and by sending up to one million brand new, carefully selected books each year. We also work with libraries to develop their services, expand their reach and equip their librarians with skills through training.
