Become a book donor

Our partnerships with publishers and other branches of the book trade are crucial to our work. Donations of brand-new book returns and overstocks enable us to provide top-quality, up-to-date material to our overseas partners. Nearly all the books we send overseas each year are donated by the UK book trade.  We also rely on financial donations from companies in order to send these books to our partners.  If your company is able to support our work please visit our corporate donations area.

Lusaka City Library

Book Aid International offers publishers a satisfying alternative to the dilemma of pulping perfectly good books which are so valuable, especially to readers in areas of the world where books are really scarce. Through us, publishers can redirect their overstocks and returns and make a contribution to the provision of educational opportunities for some of the most disadvantaged people of the world.

Our book donors

Without donations from UK publishers, we would have nothing to send to our partners – and without the books we send, many of their libraries would have nothing on their shelves. We are especially grateful for the support of the following publishers:

Chunga High School, Lusaka

Andersen Press, Baker Books, Cambridge University Press, Cengage Learning, CGP, Egmont Press, Evans Publishing Group, Frances Lincoln, Hachette Children’s Books, HarperCollins, Hodder Education, John Wiley & Sons, Learning Matters, Little,Brown, Nelson Thornes, NIACE, Oxford University Press, Pan Macmillan, Pearson Education, Penguin, Profile Books, Raintree, Reed Elsevier, Rising Stars, Sage Publishing, Short Books, Taylor & Francis, and Walker Books.
