Rwanda shipment being loaded

A message for publishers

6th May 2020 | News

Following government advice and after very careful consideration, we have taken the decision to close our main London warehouse with immediate effect and for the foreseeable future.

We do still have limited capacity to receive book donations and ask that you please get in touch with our Head of Operations, Harry Boughton before sending any donation. We aim to reopen and resume operations as soon as it is safe to do so, at which point we will be in particular need of children’s books and primary, secondary and higher education textbooks to support those returning to education.

While the warehouse is closed, the majority of our staff are currently working remotely and we continue to do all that we can to support our network of partners around the world as they respond to this crisis and find new ways to give as many people as possible access to brand new books.

Thank you for your continued support at this challenging time and wish you and your colleagues good health.

Best wishes from us all at Book Aid International.
