About us

Around the world, millions of people are unable to fulfil their potential because of a basic lack of books. Books offer the chance for people to learn, imagine new possibilities and shape their own futures. 

Every year we work with publishers and with our network of partners to supply around one million carefully selected, brand new books to public libraries, community libraries, schools, universities, refugee camps, hospitals and prisons worldwide. These books offer millions of people the opportunity to read, learn and change their own lives for the better.
