January Book of the Month

26th January 2018 | Blog

Our very first Book of the Month for 2018 is:


Construction cover
Construction Crafts Core Units donated by Oxford University Press


This practical and informative book has been developed in partnership with Leeds College of Building and written with construction learners in mind. It is brimming with up-to-date know-how from the construction industry to help students broaden their knowledge and prepare for assessments as well as gain tips on building a CV and seeking employment in the construction industry.

The book contains information about all aspects of construction


Vocational books like this are very popular in public and community libraries where out-of-school learners or unemployed people use them to develop new skills and students and apprentices use them to prepare for their exams.

Each section ends with a set of questions for readers to test their knowledge


Books on vocational topics including construction are also incredibly useful for people in prisons and prison rehabilitation centres such as those supported by our partner Zambia Library Service where this book will be going, to help prisoners develop new skills, gain qualifications and equip themselves for life after release.

Vocational books are used in prisons to help prisoners develop new skills and rebuild their lives when they are released


Books on topics such as construction, carpentry, plumbing and agriculture are always in high demand among our partners’ readers yet we are unable to supply the volume needed. If you are able to donate brand new books in this category and help us get more of these books into the hands of those who really need them, please get in touch.
